Failure to Grow Out of It!

Kate: My enduring love of Gothic culture

Get to know Kate, the founder of Kate's Clothing, and designer of prolific Gothic fashion brand Necessary Evil - our very own Woman Who Slays! Here she talks about the ever lasting pull of Gothic culture, and why it's not essential to 'grow out of it'! 

"I remember, aged about 23 years old, going to visit my mother. After a welcome greeting, she narrowed her eyes a little, taking in my attire and said “You're not going ever to grow out of it are you?” “Sorry Mum, I don't think I am.” I replied. More than a decade on and here I am, still all in black, in summer. Except now I'm preparing for my eldest child to start school, wondering when she'll notice that her mother is a little different to most of the other parents at the school gates and what that might mean to her. My own mother has always been proud of me, I hasten to add, but she has been known to yell “She's got a Chemical Engineering degree” across a car park at someone looking a little perplexed at my unusual dress sense.
