Gothic Fashion: Kambriel, the best American designer.
Kambriel is an American fashion designer, winner of Gothic Beauty’s 2005 Fashion Designer of the Year award.
Her designs were initially released in 1994 and called “Atrocities”. She is influenced by ancient historical times: Middle Ages and Victorian times. Her designs include both men’s and women’s fashions, along with a series of coordinating accessories, all of them high-quality and paying attention to craftsmanship and detail.
Now, and until April 29th in Allentown, PA, at the Goodman Gallery of the Allentown Art Museum, you can see a fashion show and museum exhibit of clothing, jewelry, needlework, art, etc…), entitled Gothic to Goth: Embracing the Dark Side.
“Gothic to Goth offers an overview of the nineteenth-century cult of mourning in American art and fashion and indicates how that trend translated into contemporary Goth fashion, a genre now embraced by mainstream couture as well as by the rock subculture of the twentieth century. Included in the exhibition are representative examples of mourning art such as needle pictures, paintings, and post-mortem daguerreotype portraits; mourning jewelry and other accessories; two late Victorian mourning outfits; and examples of contemporary Goth fashion inspired by the mourning excesses of the earlier century.”
On the afternoon of April 29th, the finale: NYC 19th Century Extravaganza!
However, it is not only ‘extravagaza’ what Kambriel designs, it is elegance and currently, her Gothic fashion is worldwide recognized and not only young but mature ladies are starting to like her clothes and perfect accessories.
