Dear Darkling is about curating every aspect of a darkly beautiful life. Much more than a fashion site, we cover jewelry, art and makeup. The darkling community is our community, and we want to help you get the look, connect with brands and artists you might not have met, and help you create the darkling life you want from your witchy boots to the candles you burn. Our staff believes that dark is beautiful, and that you deserve a site made with as much care as our featured artists put into their work.

The seeds for Dear Darkling were planted in 2016 when Haleigh Schiafo, style editor for Dirge Magazine, launched a Dirge Style section that became so successful it almost overwhelmed the magazine. Schiafo and Dirge editor-in-chief Jinx Strange created Dear Darkling, allowing those seeds to turn to blossoms, and to flourish in a publication dedicated to darkling lifestyle.
