Toxic Vision::

I have followed Toxic Vision for a few years now and I truly love her work. With her iconic glam rock style, Sharon Toxic creates unique one-off pieces fit for any punk princess. She lovingly creates all pieces herself using masses of embellishment in the form of lacing, eyelets, studs, straps and print. Keep an eye out for detailed leather biker jackets, cigarette pants and custom band leotards.

Buy her stuff here:

Twilight Siren:: Corsetiere and Lingerie Designer

My very good friend Kat heads up the amazingly unusual fierce and edgy clothing, Twilight Siren. With a degree in Contour Fashion and an MA underway, this girl knows everything about corsets and the like. Her one-off piece are beautifully handcrafted with intricate stunning details. She uses high quality fabrics and always steel bones to create the most flattering fit sure to last.

The photos above show pieces from collections titled ‘Industrial Spirit and The Engine Room’

 If you’re looking for something wonderfully bold and beautiful, you can find her on her facebook fan page and follow her thoughtful tumblr blog:

Adora Batbrat:: Electro-Goth Princess

I came across this video a while pack, surfing for crazy make-up tips, as you do. And now, I’m a bit Adora obsessed! She’s a gothic model from Sweden, with very pretty kids and an electro band husband to boot. I love her cutesy goth style, amazing cooking tips, but mostly her light-hearted ‘dark’ humour.

Loving all things vampire, Adora has recently had fangs installed! I can’t help but love a girl with enough confidence and attitude to rock blood-sucking teeth. You can keep up with Adora here::

Chanel:: Two-Finger Gloves
Accessories should be every girl’s ultimate tool. Whether it’s your favourite crucifix necklace, House of Holland tights or glam knuckle-duster, you can style the simplist outfit to something more chic, rockin’ or cute. These gloves would be my ultimate guilty pleasure, however, at nearly 400 dollars they’re going to have to stay in Chanel.
My advice to anyone with serious glove envy like me is to get down to your local market and haberdashery and fashion your own with the help of some scissors, fabric glue, rhinestones and studs! DIY or DIE :D

Violaceous Latex:: Rubber Couture
Photo: KandyK by Robert Alvarado for VL.
So I’m a massive fan of Independant designers, and having your super special garments made to fit perfectly. Bring on South Yorkshire latex specialist, Violaceous Latex. Her designs are beautifully unique and stand out from the crowd. If you’re going to buy latex, invest in something that fits you well and will last. Too many companys use cheap materials that split and lose their lustre. So if you’re looking for something daringly sexy for the fetish season, you can find glossy treasures by clicking the photo.

Thierry Mugler ft. Rico Rick Genest and Lady Gaga.

For my very first post, I just had to share this video. It’s Thierry Mugler’s Autumn/Winter 11/12 collection. The video beginning could easily be compared to imagery seen in Industrial Gods Rammstein’s music videos, and music provided by Lady Gaga adds to the comtemporary feel. I love Mugler’s meanswear with it’s sleek masculine tailoring, leather accenting, wide voluminous trousers and industrial detailing. And whether you love or hate ‘Zombie Boy’ Rick Genest, there is no doubt that he adds an edgy, sexual power to the video as a whole.
