Gothic Romance

One of the biggest trends for autumn winter 08/09 is the gothic or dark romance trend. There is absolutely no doubt that black is back this year, although I am not really sure it has ever gone away. The new soft gothic or dark romance trend is glamourous and polished. Almost everything is black but interest is added with different textures, layering, sheer and lace fabrics.
