There has been a spate of celebrity deaths recently, with Robin Williams and Lauren Bacall making headlines everywhere. But this week we lost a lesser-know celebrity, someone whose work was probably closer to all our teenage Goth hearts: Lip Service founder and designer Drew Bernstein. He was found dead on Monday, another apparent suicide, at the age of 51.
Thanks for everything, Lippy. You don’t know me, and I didn’t know you, but you certainly decorated the world I lived in for a very long time. Mutual friends spoke of you with love and respect. You inspired a generation of independent designers. And you made some seriously epic pants.
RIP Drew Bernstein 1963-2014
While I (slowly) get through the massive amounts of vintage and antique clothing and jewelry – yes, there’s Victorian mourning pieces in those piles – I’ve amassed this summer, I’ve opened a new small section of the Disco Witch Vintage shop :: Black Metal Barbie Custom T’s.
More listings coming later this week!

The little witches created by The Mystic Asylum are so delicate and fair, so curious and all knowing. The tiny souls are a “fusion of personal experiences and influences – moody atmospheres, Victorian-inspired couture, and timeless elements all laced with clandestine symbolism.”
Collect your own coven at The Mystic Asylum’s Etsy Shop, and follow her on Instagram.
