Afira: Female Dandy meets Gothic

The vampish Gothic undertones may not be for the faint-hearted; but this debut collection from British label Afira will definitely not go unnoticed. Embracing fetish fashion as a major trend, the leather harness pieces team raw sexual power with delicate sheer fabric to a stunning effect. We’re also captivated by the female dandy elements.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
