For the second week of Claim the Fame the designers had to create a dark attire for male and female and make a description that was read during the TV Show on Metaverse TV. (http://metaversetv.com/blog/2011/04/claim-the-fame-3/)
Vixn Dagger: “Just about Everyone associates goth and darkness with Edgar Allen Poe. He’s one of my all time favorite author’s from childhood. So as an influence for this project I used Poe’s poem “The Raven”. The men’s and women’s matching design sets titled “Nevermore”
Another point I tried to aim for is staying away from typical “Black” Clichee which is associated with being “Goth”. I used Hues of Purple and black to add an iridescent effect to the pieces. On the women’s dress you will find hand drawn Raven’s heads adorning the breasts. On both the Men’s and women’s outfits you will find the fantasy aspect of hand drawn Raven feather adornments. I wanted to have the Men and women Wearing these designs feel like the Dark Gods and Goddesses of the underworld.
