Modern Gothic: Behind The Scenes

November 5, 2011 · 3

Rachel Glennie - Rhona Roy Vintage Black 1940's Dress, New Look Greigey High Heels, (Mixture!) Studded Bangles, Given To Me By Family Two Gold Rings: One Belonging Each Of My Granny's, (Again, Belonging To Friend Katy!) Studded Thin Belt - Modern Gothic: Behind The Scenes

This look was created for a photo shoot me & my friends styled and modeled in for our Fashion Management magazine, Muse.
Our theme was 'Modern Gothic' and was shot at the graveyard at St Machar's Cathedral, Aberdeen.

I love how much vintage is in this look. This dress is absolutely priceless to me, it is my Granny's dress and it belonged to her when she was roughly my age back in the 1940's! It is absolutely stunning, and fits like it was chosen to fit me - rather than someone else. It must be the family genes! The rings too, also my Granny's rings are amazing, and felt totally right being put together with this outfit. The paleness of my skin contrasting with all the black, which is usually something I'm not that keen on, really helps set off the cold, slightly gothicy vibe - even if my pose is even just a bit Carrie Bradshaw!
