The following work is an exploration on a fashion editorial appropriation of the different archetypes, which are associated with the female in gothic literature. We see many popular stereotypes of women portrayed by many authors. Examples of this are Bram Stoker's 'Dracula' with the characters many wives, who are vulnerable and trapped by the dominant male. The writings of 'Wuthering Heights' and 'Jane Eyre' include passionate, feminist characters that attempt to subvert and escape restrictions of the female entrapment within the domestic space. Sorrow and mourning is also a common theme amongst protagonist roles as is the archetype of the powerful woman with control over the man and the environment, the writings of Rebecca do this with an eponymous femme fatale character, dominating the entire plot even though she is deceased.
