Gothic Glamour is all the rage this Autumn Winter! From Dolce and Gabbana to Lanvin to Bottega Veneta, everyone is at it. It’s a trend that comes around quite often but there is a reason why, it’s simply gorgeous!
Gorgeous and sumptuous velvets, lace, brocades all creating this heady mix of over the top pieces but when done in black you can get away with it. Mix it with some everyday pieces and you have a unique look with a touch of glamour, perfect to enrich a wet winter.
Below is a selection of some of Gemma Lister’s BLACK pieces. There is something for everyone, jewel encrusted embellishment to subtle sequins to cool edgy PVC and not forgetting the super chic Black Velvet Pearl Collar, which is sooooooooo elegant.

I was looking for a kawaii style dress for my upcoming gigs in London, but the dresses I found on the internet were quite expensive and can be bought only online. So I went to Covent Garden to find some dance wear shops as an option. Suddenly I found ‘Happie loves it’ boutique, and liked absolutely all their designs! It’s absolutely my style – cute, but not too cute, rather cuteness that makes you look different. I bought a nice dress with an asymmetrical collar and buttons, and a red bracelet. They perfectly match my red shoes from OFFICE. I am going to appear in this dress at my upcoming gigs! I will definitely come back to Happie Loves It to buy a coat or a T-shirt next time.

I adore Japanese creativity and my personality is very much influenced by philosophy of Japanese fashion designers, even my music project. These pixelated collars and also the interpretation of 3D shapes made my evening!
