How Not To Be Seen: Unlearning Invisibility – One Year Later

It’s Pride Month and nearly a year has passed since my essay, “How Not To Be Seen: Unlearning Invisibility,” was first published here on Haute Macabre. So lately I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting on that particular piece of writing which, to my surprise and subsequent joy, ended up helping more people than myself […]

How Not To Be Seen: Unlearning Invisibility

A few months ago Sam invited the staff writers to pen some personal pieces for Haute Macabre. I’ve since considered writing about a variety of subjects that interest me, but there’s something else, something much more personal that’s been on my mind for a very long time and this suddenly seemed like a singular opportunity to […]

An Interview with Chelsea Wolfe

Our dear friend, JL Schnabel of BloodMilk Jewels, had the opportunity to talk with ethereal musician Chelsea Wolfe, about to embark on a European tour. I first encountered Chelsea Wolfe’s haunting, ritualistic music at the tail end of 2011, and like many of her fans, I was immediately spellbound by her audible cabinet of curiosities. While […]

Mother of London Knocked Off at AMAs

UPDATE Willow Smith’s stylist responsible for ripping off Mother of London‘s signature harness at the AMAs has been named, and it’s not Mariel Haenn. The offending copycat in this case is Brea Stinson, aka Bstar. We’re relieved and thrilled that Mildred Von Hildegard is able to finally get the credit she deserves, and to move […]

Speak Up! Elijah Sound

Haute Macabre  speaks to Elijah Sound of  A.D. 2013, one of the designers behing the ultra-hip Romulan outfits in the new Star Trek film (which, as you know, I have been ranting about for some time now.

Speak Up: Suzanne Rachel Forbes

We post a lot of photographs here at Haute Macabre. We do this because in this day and age, photographs are the ubiquitous media of fashion. If you want to remember at a pretty outfit, you take a photograph. Of course, this wan’t always the case. Back in the good old days if you wanted […]

Speak Up! Loved to Death

Speak Up! : Corvidd

First things first, tell us about yourself & your product! Well, I spend much of my time like most endothermic carbon-based organisms […]

To Corrupt From Within

We’ve mentioned more than a few times how Rick Owens makes savage love to the runway, and how I almost wanted him to stop because I was having a hard time processing his specific breed of fashion pornography.  He just keeps going though.  Nick Knight of SHOWstudio caught glimpses of the designer in the following […]

Speak Up! : Eirik Aswang

First things first, tell us about yourself & what you do! My names Eirik Aswang, that’s pronounced, “Eric Ahs-wahng”. I was born in San Francisco in 1942- died 2005, reborn 2007. I’m a painter, sculptor, and fashion/costume accessory designer. What makes you Haute Macabre? I’m guessing cause of the dark feelings emulated from the look […]
