World 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.
At 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!
We hope you had the gloomiest, darkest, BLAKest day of your life and look forward to receiving more of your photos next year.
