Dark, gothic glamour

AP – Rodarte brought dark, gothic glamour and opulence to the runway with a shimmering show that transported the audience to a majestic Celtic fairytale land with a dark twist.

Rodarte sister-duo designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy, who worked on the tutus for 2010’s Black Swan, seemingly pulled inspiration from the film again. Rodarte’s line illustrated that the “balletcore” style trend may be headed down a darker path this year.

Models wore heavy, winged black eyeliner and black lipstick, matching their black gowns with long and pointy sleeves that draped to the floor for a dark fairy look. In signature Rodarte fashion, buttery satin, ruffles, ribbons and lace were heavily present throughout some of the most visually pleasing gowns with simple silhouettes and puffy, broad shoulders and structuring. Some models wore capes and held grand bouquets of tulips.

Winter by Tori Amos set the haunting atmosphere as the gowns grew increasingly more avant-garde with hues of yellow, green and purple. A handful of models wore oversized black, blue and purple coloured bonnets and veils like Tim Burton characters.
