Hey Fab Bats, Happy Frivolous Friday! Today I would like to feature one of my favorite independent brands which I gush over all the time. Corvus Corone is an all-inclusive-size shop run by Heidi Grotesque. Here’s a quick look…
39;Nightshade’ dress Double layered outfit with a black rubber-look bodycon mini dress and a sheer maxi skirt with harness overlay. Soft, floaty and ideal for Summer! The sheer harness dress can also be worn as beachwear!
She describes herself and clothing line in her “about” section:
Crazy cat lady, tightlacer and aspiring fashion designer. Owner of Corvus Corone Fashion.
My main aspirations are to create beautiful, high-quality Gothic and Alternative clothing and accessories both as one-off pieces and every-day wear.
As you can probably tell from my shop, my favourite fabrics to work with are velvet, lace, and scuba jersey but I worked with woven fabrics whilst studying Fashion and Clothing at college, and I also worked for a year with a wedding dress brand (first as design intern, then I was promoted to Junior Pattern Cutter) so I am comfortable working with a large range of fabrics, including satin, brocade, beaded fabrics, and silk crepe.
Below are some personal favorites:
39;Wisteria’ crop top This beautiful laced-up crop top is made from soft, light-weight jersey and is absolutely perfect for summer! The oversized hood is ideal for keeping you warm in the mild summers evening’s and the billowing handkerchief-hem sleeves will keep you cool all day and warm all night!

Velvet ‘Spellbound’ dress By popular request, our Spellbound dress is now available in luxury black velvet! This enchanting dress has an off-shoulder bodice with adjustable satin elastic shoulder straps and a double layered circle skirt with handkerchief hem.
