The Secret Chamber: black cats and dark fashion

A secret chamber, a black cat, a pair of dark lips and an old-fashioned, baroque-like background high on its desolation, tie the Diogo Pereira photo shoot to the ever fascinating and nostalgically attractive league of noir. Starring fresh model Alba from Delphoss International Model Agency, the editorial plays upon black obscurity and thrilling mystification as echoed by the bold component of Gothic fashion.

Making the entire concept of shooting in a cemetery look fashionable and memorable it’s quite the challenge on itself, without having to take into consideration the pursuit of a perfectly balanced array based entirely on all-black looks that must not be too faded, nor too loud, but neither too boring. Stylist Jessica Garibaldi placed all bets on a “profusion of black lace, fishnets and leather”, throwing a little bit of bareness into the fantasy shoot, alongside other whimsical and precarious accessories.

Platform wedge lace-up booties, dark eyeliner and a sleek hair style complement the “modern-day version of late Victorian excess” avid on keeping the defining elements of goth right under the spotlight.

Shaped by all things beautiful and feminine, Nicoleta Parascan’s first steps towards entering the captivating world of fashion were taken somewhere around the young age of six, when she received her very own first fashion magazine. Discovering an entirely new universe, filled with pretty ladies and beautiful clothes, there was not much able to ever beat or compete with the fantasy land that was suddenly opening up. Surrounded by books, constantly thinking about the next best outfit, in search of a signature style and defined by a nostalgic calling towards the past, Nicoleta believes in taking chances, in destiny and in building her own path in life. When she’s not writing, you can easily find her playing with her cat, reading an old book, watching movies, exploring the city or blogging her own daily adventures.
