I've been doing some fast research on the fashions of Death motif, for the Urken Biotch novel series and came across more than I thought i was going to come up with. For some reason I had it in my head that 'serious' designers weren't going to toy with a Death design. Again, I find that I am far from correct, which is why I still do research. This design is from 1938 and was created by a woman named Elsa Shiapareli . It was, at the time, scandalous, but also intriguing... as scandalous items tend to be. Of course I have found much more and I'll probably post most of it over the next couple of weeks while I finish this first novel.
