It's no secret that I have a minor obsession with all things Faerie. From the artists like Brian Froud (who's artwork is featured here), to novels featuring faeries like Peter Pan, to searching the woods for a faerie-ring of mushrooms, anything with faeries in it tends to catch my eye. While overtly faerie-inspired fashion is rare, I've spotted bits and pieces of it everywhere. Whether designers are channelling moonstone sparkles of the faerie queen, dark baroque elements that harken to the Brother's Grimm and the Black Forest, or flowers of the Victorian-era flower fairies the influence of the Otherlands is always present. We may not be able to see it outright, but it's always there in the corner of our eye and in the moment between sleep and waking.
