5 Gothic Clothing Shops I'm Exploring This Evening


Alternative X

"Beautiful gothic clothing." This shop is based out of Nairn, Scotland. Besides running the clothing shop, Alternative X puts on alternative rock club events from time to time.

For women, the shop sells tops, dresses, skirts, underbust and overbust corsets, and coats. The selection for men includes t-shirts, shirts, vests, coats and trousers.

My favorite item of clothing here is their black and red Baroque skirt.


Roxx Online

Hand-made clothing, including beautiful, flowing medieval gowns; fleur de lys dresses; wedding dresses; menswear; and some stunning capes and coats.

Check out the lacy spiderweb coat and this damask style velvet chenille coat.

There are truly gorgeous garments here - I am so tempted by several of them!



A gothic, punk and Lolita clothing shop, based in the UK. They sell several styles of Lolita dresses (School, Rococo, Sweet and Classic); men's and women's gothic clothing; punk clothes; medieval clothing for men and women; Victorian clothing; and some steampunk clothing. There are also a few corsets on offer.

The models and photography here are gorgeous - you'll really enjoy browsing this shop!

Inspired Insanity

This Australian shop sells punk, gothic, rockabilly, 1950s pinup style, and other alternative styles of clothing. They also sell plus size clothing, a few pieces of maternity clothing, and a few styles of shoes. I'm also enjoying checking out their homewares, jewelry and gifts.

They carry a lot of the Hell Bunny brand items, some psychobilly clothing, and only two menswear items that I can see.

Daisy Viktoria

"Faerie Queen couture." She designs lovely bridal, prom, historical and costume gowns, plus corsets, skirts, tops, shrugs and coats. She also offers tie-on bustles, which I think is quite a clever idea! Many of the items here are available as custom orders.

Some of the clothing here is extremely unusual, I've not seen anything like it - such as this Swirls and Stripes Cupcake Dress.

  1. Ah, my favourite type of links! I actually haven't heard of ANY of these, thanks for posting them!

  2. Oh good! Glad you enjoyed them. I sometimes hesitate to include TOO many shops or commercial links too often, so people don't feel spammed or solicited! I just love seeing all the gothy products out there.
