When I hear the word Circus I think of my childhood and going to see the Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey Circus at Madison Square Garden. It was sensational, the costumes, animals, acrobatics, the whole show was both scary and mesmerizing. The circus in general has been illustrated in fashion for many years, but I believe it is going to take a darker turn. Gothic Circus is what I have dubbed this theme, rich colors, textured fabrics and severe hair and makeup is what I want to see this winter. Think queen of the circus clowns wearing a crushed velvet structured jacket with a peplum, a strong cat eye with aubergine lips and a crow perched on her shoulder. Welcome to the circus, the Gothic Circus.
