This fantasy fashion show / gothic theme inspired fashion show was a joint collaboration between us, Skrocki Design (previously called Paragon of Design by Skrocki) and Lewis Mayhem in 2016. All new pieces were created based on an original concept focusing on an ancient family of vampires. The colors selected for the show were symbolically chosen to represent life, death and the transition to the immortal state. All our masks, leather corsets, jewelry, clutches etc. were developed for this show over the course of 6 months, with the longest pieces taking 1 month each to create. The riveted corset from the show can be viewed in the video "How to Set Rivets." About Lewis Mayhem aka Cory Richard-Jones. Lewis Mayhem was founded in 2008 by fashion designer/music promoter, Cory Richard Jones. Heavily influenced by the music scene and alternative club scene, she wanted to create a brand that that provided badass clothing for people who embraced the nightlife. The line initially catered to the music, goth and rave scene but in later years it grew into a festival brand with a heavy tribal and occult influence.
