A raven-haired beauty wearing Raven

Clothing label Raven are purveyors of all things dark and alternative, but then with gothic styling making a revival into high fashion, dark and alternative are two qualities in strong demand. To shoot pieces from Raven’s autumn 2013 collection, Peter Coulson was certifiably the man for the job, pairing up with model Rebecca again and turning her into something of a raven-haired Alice in a warped countryside Wonderland.

Coulson didn’t turn to any backdrop cliches to make the images work: no graveyards or abandoned buildings or churches, just trees and grass made hazy and distorted by his lens for a ghostly effect. Dani Frankenstein’s makeup fits perfectly with the Gothic theme: messy, matted waves, smokey eyes and dark lips rounding out the scene.

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.
