WORLD GOTH DAY 2013: Did you get your Goth on?

WGD1World Goth Day is an annual worldwide event that celebrates goth music, fashion and art on May 22nd.

It began in 2009 as Goth Day, started by two UK DJs from the BBC, the superbly named Martin OldGoth and Cruel Britannia.

Rather than have it on Halloween they chose May, so goths could stand apart from others by explicitly flaunting their blackness right smack in the middle of sparkling Spring.

tribe4mian-world-goth-dayAt Virgin Blak we’re not ALL about Goth, our line of fashion carries plenty of colour and variety for all kinds of styles (just as long a you dare to be different), but we do carry a lot of dark appeal and have an undeniable connection with the Goth subculture.

Over the past few months we’ve been gathering photos from all you VB darklings in all your Goth Day glory and below is a small collection of what we received. We’re happy to see you gloomy creatures wearing your Virgin Blak with pride on what is one of the darkest dedicatory days of the year!

Jonathan Rhys Meyers sinks his fangs into new Dracula role

Dracula-NBC-1When it comes to his personal life, Jonathan Rhys Meyers has had a trouble-filled few years.

But now the Irish actor is moving on by sinking his teeth into a new role – that of the most famous vampire of all time, Dracula.

The 35-year-old star takes on the role of American businessman Alexander Grayson, aka Dracula in a new show, a co-production between NBC and Sky Living that looks set to be the sexiest, bloodiest incarnation of the notorious vampire yet. A trailer for the show opens in London in the 1890s, with a party thrown to welcome Grayson into town.

JRM Dracula2It’s quickly made clear that Grayson’s arrival on the scene is going to cause its fair share of problems, especially as he is introduced to Jessica De Gouw’s character Mina Murray – to whom he was linked in a prior life. His love for Mina drives him almost to the brink of insanity, as Grayson attempts to resist encouragement to turn her from a human into a vampire.

Well as you all know Virgin Blak is no stranger of being a fine purveyor and stocker of vampire-esque clothing, and going from the images above Jonathan Rhys Meyers sharp, sleek and chic style matches our offerings down to a tee.

Sink your own teeth in to some of our more vampiric offerings below and get ready for our stock update for next season which will include a welcoming influx of over 1000 new items!
