We are really pleased to announce that Ravenix (aka Lauren Matthews) has agreed to become a writer for Other Clothing:
My name is Lauren Matthews (full name Lauren Judith Matthews but I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with my middle name), aged 20, and in my final year at Newcastle University. I’m studying English Language and Literature. I’ve been into alternative fashion since I was 13, starting off with Gothic and Heavy Metal, with an interest in Industrial music and fashion coming along much later.
As of now I still love all three, and tend to mix and match a bit. My favourite bands include The Cure, Nine Inch Nails, Skinny Puppy and Metallica (amongst numerous others). My favourite brands include Necessary Evil, Demonia, Hell Bunny and Poizen Industries. I also have a fondness for Japanese culture, so I do wear Gothic Lolita from time to time.
I like playing guitar, reading (both novels and graphic novels), writing (poetry and prose) and eating (especially cookies- I’m not overweight though, honest). I live at home (in Northumberland) with my Dad and my cat Sidward.
