Fashion - Necrosis is the new Black

For those at the cutting edge of medical fashion, few trends could be more sharp than "Necrosis Black with Pustule Yellow." Picking up on the season's bold emphasis on clashing and contrasting colours combined with the bold bravery of welfare-austerity, rotting-pus is bang on trend.

Rags are good - an emphasis on "vintage" giving the lie to "We're all in it together." As Gucci and Burberry give way to Primark and Pound Shop, look for cheap fabrics, fraying seams and very poor cuts.

Those sporting "Path-Lab Red" brave enough to clash with "IV Purple Bruise" will ensure they stay one step ahead of meeker medical-fashionistas.

"Pallid" - always on trend amongst the "Beech Ward Brigade - has become the number one statement for Autumn/Winter. Joined by the legions of poor and hungry, and the millions unable to take advantage of a Costa-Del-Wealthy tan, months spent bedridden or housebound are really the only way to achieve the look successfully. (Though heroin and crack addicts of the traditional size-zero-community should manage to stay one step ahead of the crowd.)

Look out for Bile-Green splashed in Jackson-Pollock-style specks on oh-so-industrial bandage-grey on the catwalks of Paris and Milan for Spring.

Eyes, should be heavily underscored with black circles - the "welfare-terror" look is in vogue and should continue to be popular well into next Summer and beyond. The Insomnia collection is a good example of one to watch. Also "Fatigue" and "Bed-Hair".

New Spas, emulating NHS treatment weekends have sprung up around the country, with enemas, vascular access and free drugs amongst the options most fiercely sought. Waiting lists are growing by the day!!

To conclude, the Vom-Chic trend looks set to continue. Time to look out those surgical-stockings.

My look for 2011/12 is Skeletal-Steroidal - what's yours?

  10. Grey, all grey clothing soaked in panic-attack sweat.

    On special days I have bright red happy-pants that reduce the chances of being run-over. Again.

  11. Mine is the 'living under a stone' pale, greasy-haired pyjama'ed look most days when I'm not putting on a brave face and facing the world and pretending I'm normal, haha :-D.

  12. Wearing women's clothes still makes me self-harm, so I go for enormous denim shirts that keep me covered, plus some boxer shorts, so as not to frighten the neighbours!

  13. My look is hollowed eyed form lack of sleep, and cuts from trying to release any feeling from the black hole that is depression and anxiety, in saggy sains joggers and a saggy black T from tesco, with no bra....
