For our Dark Romance season at KC, we've been getting ready for summer, which in turn means weddings, proms, and parties galore, plus a chance to truly flaunt your style in a way that just isn't possible whilst bundled up in a million layers (although of course we goths do our best!) And now, coming to the end of our celebration of all things dark and romantic, we've put together a little list of tips to help you achieve gothic perfection for your wedding. Whether your big day is imminent, or a distant dream away, read on for our ideas on achieving your perfect gothic wedding!
It was Kate's wedding and the whole team wished her well! As some of you may or may not know, Kate is not just the name of the store... Kate is real! She is the captain of our ship and the leader of our black parade here, and perfectly timed for our Dark Romance season, Kate just got married! So for those of you who are curious about the people you are shopping with, here is an open window to Kate's totally alternative big day!
Here at Kate’s Clothing, we’re fascinated by all the different alternative styles out there – what makes them stand out, where they originated, and how they’re wrapped up in alternative culture – so we are writing a series of Style Focus blogs to celebrate many alternative fashion trends you can shop for on our website. This week, we’re looking at the cute and colourful world of kawaii and pastel goth fashion!
With the run up to the end of term – and the end of high school altogether for some! – here at Kate’s Clothing we’re all hyped up and ready to party, and we’ve been working on expanding our prom and party range so that you can be the gothic belle of the ball. But although we are sure that you’ll all have a fantastic time at your prom, we’ve made a little list of those annoying prom-blems that only goths will understand.
As part of our Dark Romance season, here at Kate’s Clothing we've decided to come up with a list of our favourite fictional prom dates! We are also running a competition, where you could win your perfect prom dress, simply by telling us which fictional character you would most like to take to prom – so keep reading for some inspiration!

If you've been following our blog for a while, you may remember that we published an article on the rise of the 'Health Goth' fashion and lifestyle trend. Because Health Goth is going nowhere any time soon, and because here at Kate's clothing we absolutely love everything Health Goth - from the clothing style to its gritty and down to earth fitness ethos - we decided to post another piece on Health Goth style and keeping fit the alternative way!
