There weren’t a lot of designers who showed Gothic receptivity this season at NY Fashion Week. Guishem showed an edgier, intelligent, pieced collection that was reminiscent of the witch in Disney’s Sleeping Beauty.
The collection was a little bit of punk, a little bit of Goth, part insect and a lot of rock n’ roll. It was all about cocktail dresses or polished gowns for young mutinous things.
Designer Guillermo Jop studied fashion at
London’s Central St. Martin and came from a family in the textile business.
