The Black Wardrobe is an independent up-and-coming fashion designer label who strives to combine Gothic and Vintage influences with contemporary style and sophistication while focusing on the sensuality of the female form. Inspired by femme fatales of the 30s, 40s and 50s, all items are feminine and tailored, with sultry and classic cuts that emphasize and fit the real figure no matter what size, all in the trademark but not exclusive, colour of black. Every single item is carefully handmade to order, from the tailored pieces to the unique jewellery made of clay embellished with special incrustations such as crystals and lace.
Launched in Autumn 2008 by spanish fashion graduate Nora BenHayyi, BW wants to set the pace for glamourous fashion mainly in black, hence the name. The intention was to create a vintage inspired label that was unique, sophisticated, practical but also affordable. An alternative to all those enthusiasts for the nostalgic fashions and the gloomy drama of Gothic, who want a more mature and urban look while preserving its dark character.
