Abstract

n the streets of my hometown of Melbourne, too, I can see the evidence of this gothic turn. On the tram I see people wearing t-shirts decorated with skulls and skeletons. Posters on the tram shelter advertise the latest vampire movie, Twilight, while bookshops carry the Twilight series of novels. Members of the Goth subculture are featured in weekend supplements on street styles. Fashion magazines use the University's neo-gothic cloisters as a backdrop for their fashion shoots.
