It says that general fashion is permitted here, so how about a gothic/alternative fashion thread? Western, not gothic lolita.
Gothic rock started in the UK in the 1980s and is an offshoot of post-punk. The subculture that was based on the music survived through the decade and to this very day still has many "followers". Many fashion styles have been connected to goth, and they will be discussed here.
A list of some goth bands (NOTE: There are way more bands than I listed. I just posted the more popular ones):
Bauhaus, Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Cure, Alien Sex Fiend, Christian Death, 45 Grave
Black Tape For A Blue Girl, Love Spirals Downwards, etc.
Such styles include 1980s goth, deathrock, victorian, cybergoth, etc.
Obviously, those listed above are not the only stores! Feel free to link shops you like, post photos for ootd or outfits you enjoy, stories, etc.
