Get Victorian Goth At Royal Black Shop!
If Lewis Carroll’s mind could be morphed into a physical manifestation, Royal Black’s shop of couture and corsetry would depict it perfectly. Awe-inspiring works of art, these corsets and costumes have as many twists and turns as Wonderland itself.

Barbara Pesendorfer breathes life into the very bones and meat of unusual art. Living and striving in Vienna Austria, Barbara sews all her imaginative corsets and eccentric wear by hand. She molds beautiful and exquisite fabrics into form fitting corsets and extravagant Gothic evening gowns. The glamorous collections that can be found inside Royal Black Shop are not simple designs, they’re a smooth and fluent mixture of imagination and silky elegance.
For over ten years Barbara has been crafting her own fairy tale designs and patterns for vintage and creative spirits. Royal Black Shop is an enchanted garden, sprouting and twisting like emerald green vines around one’s body.
Blossoming rose inspired corsets, red and black Gothic mermaid dresses, butterfly themed ball gowns and handsome masquerade-styled suits for the gentlemen are what fills this lively garden of bewitching garments and delightful concoctions of the mind.

Royal Black Shop is a cozy haven for the darker minded ladies. Ladies who prefer a mad-hatter styled tea party compared to a home-cooked meal, prepared by a 1950s housewife. Royal Black’s collections are still timeless in their own unique way though.

Pin-up and burlesque loving ladies will still find stunning show-stopping outfits that can be incorporated into everyday vintage wear. Of course, one might have to possess a very off-beat taste to showcase most of Royal Black’s brand of decorative goodies.

This doesn’t mean that the collection of corsets and costumes are not to be desired, it’s just the opposite. Royal Black Shop has thousands of fans from all across the world who admire and follow the store’s success. With a little red lipstick, a pair of long black gloves or the touch of a little black bird-cage veil – Royal Black can be the ultimate shopping destination for those who prefer the wails of violins and cellos to the sound of old rock n’ roll. Thanks to Barbara, artwork has never looked so wearable!
