The first time I heard about Corp. Goth I though: "wow, useful black clothes for work without all the drama of victorian-themed or all other full length gowns..." I was wrong, I never managed to find anything similar to what I do.
The main reason I started my fashion label it was because I wanted to offer dramatic clothes for the everyday life (I didn't see anyone in the alternative scene offering that and I still don't). However, that means that it doesn't always have to be a gorgeous gown with overwhelming amount of detailing and embellishments to reach that dramatic look.
I have just found a picture of Carol Vorderman (as far as I know, she is not into alternative fashion). She looked like a very stereotypical femme fatale only because she was wearing a very simple but dramatic dress, with pointed shoulders!
She looks gorgeous, mysterious, sexy and most interesting, unique and different!
The dress is not designer and is not alternative, is from the Victoria Beckham collection.
I have to admit that I have surprised myself by liking it. The pieces are classy, wearable but not boring and very feminine. They really flatter the figure by accentuating the hourglass shape. This picture of ms Vorderman is a proof that you don't need to be skinny to look stunning. If you are still unsure, have a look at mrs Beckham wearing similar dresses and tell me. Who do you think wears them best?
