I did an interview via email with artist Annie Bertram recently. Annie is an amazing artist who puts her heart into what she does, is extremely kind, and I’m so glad that I got to do this interview with her. She was wonderful with her answers, which provide a lot of insight into her work, inspirations, and creative process.
Vecona is a German couturier that makes Victorian-inspired, long-skirted, many-petticoated, tattered, Frankenstein-esque wisps of affairs. Their style ranges from historical gowns to deathrock-inspired clothing, but the Victorian influence is definitely a heavy, prominent one. Vecona outfits various musicians such as Anna-Varney of Sopor Aeternus, Lucas Lanthier of Cinema Strange and The Deadfly Ensemble, and Emilie Autumn. Most of the pieces in their collections are separates that match and layer to create a perfectly extravagant, many-parted outfit with hoops, bustles, and all. Visit Vecona’s site here. I have exactly one piece from Vecona, but wish I had so many more.
