Turkish fashion designer and recent Central Saint Martins graduate, Dilara Findikoglu, took to London to showcase her FW17 collection. Last season, Findikoglu's SS17 presentation was a whirlwind of influences that clashed gang symbols, ’70s-era Bowie glitz and glam and rococo-era Marie Antoinette vibes.

For FW17, Dilara added some nostalgic goth and nu-metal homages into the mix. Corpse paint, elaborate facial jewelry and mock tribal tattoos took viewers on a time warp back to the days when KoRn and Disturbed reigned supreme, and Dilara also took the opportunity to pay tribute to goth-metal icon Marilyn Manson. See below for a gothy ensemble and Marilyn tee sported by sultry Instagram mega-celeb Sita Abellan.

It seems that this shout-out to the lord of darkness is actually an official collab — let's hope so.

Elsewhere, Dilara used glitzy detailing, lavish embroideries, sheer fabrics and wacky haircuts to pack yet more visual punch. The results were sort of like someone dragged Alessandro Michele's Gucci through a dungeon filled with evil clowns and Slipknot. In the best way.
