Goth Fae / Steampunk Dollie offers an intriguing blend of Steam-Goth and Victorian Retro-Futuristic styles, accented with a splash of sideshow spice, to present a mixture of clothing that will appeal to a wide range of alternative-fashion enthusiasts. The “NOLA 1910″ collection, in a lacy, demurely risque, Neo-Victorian style is inspired by the ladies of Storyville, New Orleans. In striking contrast, the “Midnight Sideshow” group is dark circus / burlesque in theme. It includes both newly made discordantly-colored patchwork designs and one-of-a-kind, deconstructed, up-cycled garments, to conjure up images of a seedy post-apocalyptic traveling carnival. All of the clothing and co-ordinating accessories reflect designer Jeanne M. Thompson’s lifelong appreciation of vintage style, and a slightly twisted sense of humor.
