Well, it's happening.
I started by chance making some items in my Fall 2023 group with a Victorian flair and I got very excited about the results.
From there it's a small skip to Goth and steampunk. Both trends that I like and did not explore in the past.
So, there is no time like the present to continue with this trend.
Black Dahlia started the trend with the high neck and puffy sleeves. Then the black florals followed.
More are coming.
Look for tight waists, puffy sleeves, corsets and lots of tulle.
And of course, most in black.
