"The definition of Afro Goth is a subculture of African and dark skinned men and women that have a passion for goth and/or emo style in dress, music, and personality. The goth style tends to gravitate towards a darker palette and both clothes and makeup using cimmerian undertones."

One year ago a great visionary woman left our world.

Eiko Ishioka was a Japanese costume designer who won an Oscar for her Gothic designs for Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Francis Ford Copola’s 1992 opera of sex and violence.

Her collaboration with director Tarsem Singh spanned 4 of his films and it is a legacy that will amaze for many years to come.

In Singh’s first feature, The Cell, (2000) Jennifer Lopez plays a psychologist trapped by a serial killer. Ishioka encased her into a rigid neck-brace, equally stylized and darkly erotic. “Jennifer asked me if I could make it more comfortable, but I said: ‘No you are supposed to be tortured’” Ishioka explained in 2000.

Her visual craft can be seen on three more of Singh’s pictures, the otherworldly costumes for The Fall (2006), mythological fantasy for the Greek Immortals (2011) and finally Mirror Mirror (2012) that won her a final posthumous Oscar nomination.

This is my little tribute to her genius with examples from her work from those five films in chronological order.

Raintower is a strange amalgamation of mysticism and revolutionary spirit. The slogan isn’t “Look sexy this summer!” or “Get the latest look!” – in fact, it’s much catchier than that: “Fuck Fast Fashion”

Why? Because the textile and garment industries are two of the most earth-destroying…

Erykah Badu and Riccardo Tisci in Paper Magazine.

The first time we met was at one of her concerts in New York a few years back. But the first time we actually connected was when she arrived to the set of the campaign. I was so nervous — it is rare to spend time with one of your idols, and she is truly one of my ultimate ones. She was nothing short of what I had in mind.

She arrived with the most outrageous hair (a solo braid long to the floor) and an amazing hat. She was the exact definition of style according to me. We clicked immediately. We hugged and talked for so long, about everything and anything. And we share so much more than aesthetics… I love her.
