WHITBY GOTH WEEKEND OCT 2017

Whitby Goth Weekend. The biannual Goth culture and fashion gathering is the 2nd largest of its kind in the world, and took place on October 27th – 29th 2017 in the North Yorkshire fishing town. The origins of the Goth festival is said to be based around the town that writer Bram Stoker penned the famous story of Dracula, drawing inspiration from the great Gothic Abbey looking down upon Whitby. More than two decade back in the mid to late 1990s, two lone Goths dwelled within Whitby. With nothing much going on at the time, and the reputation of “the only Goths in the village”, they hatched a great plan to invite friends to a Goth gathering, and the rest as they say is history.

As per usual, my focus in documenting this amazing event is that of fashion and individual style, and its interpretation. I first encountered the WGW back in 2007 in a super cool Japanese fashion magazine called Kera.
