I'm loving the fetish trend as seen on the A/W11 runways of Louis Vuitton, Dior, Alexander McQueen and Lanvin, amongst a host of other designers. Black lace, sheer fabrics, leather, rubber and PVC create 'gothic romance' and 'erotic innuendo' (Suzanne Clements & Inacio Ribeiro, Vogue A/W11 Runway Round-Up). I love sheer black fabric, whether as a shirt, an overlayer maxi skirt or simple scarf, it's so gorgeous and tactile.

This is what I wore last night for my friend's birthday night out, making lace and sheer fabric less fetish and more feminine.
