Friday the 13th: FASHION

 A rare occurrence (only happens 3 times at most a year) Friday the 13th is an interesting day to say the least.  Surrounded by superstition the date has become a part of Western culture as an urban legend.

With all that aside, the date got me thinking about the fascination of folklore, superstition, and even the supernatural...more importantly from a FASHION point-of-view Friday the 13th brought to mind designers like Alexander McQueen, Rodarte, Givenchy, and my all time favorite FIT Museum Exhibit- GOTHIC: DARK GLAMOUR (

Regardless of your thoughts on the subject matter, I've arranged a little visual treat to start your day off right.  Enjoy- 

"Legend has it: If 13 people sit down to dinner together, one will die within the year. The Turks so disliked the number 13 that it was practically expunged from their vocabulary (Brewer, 1894). Many cities do not have a 13th Street or a 13th Avenue. Many buildings don't have a 13th floor. If you have 13 letters in your name, you will have the devil's luck (Jack the Ripper, Charles Manson, Jeffrey Dahmer, Theodore Bundy and Albert De Salvo all have 13 letters in their names). There are 13 witches in a coven. The Devil's Dozen." - Source:
