Punk fashion started in the 1970’s as an anarchic and aggressive movement. The movement was closely aligned to music. Punk fashion included torn up clothes, safely pin, deconstruction and frayed edges which was a striking move at the time as fabric had always been almost sacred, to be kept as pristine as possible. Doc Martens were a key element of the punk look.
Punk fashion was about self mutilation, bondage, unisex, ugly. It was anti-fashion.
But has punk fashion become a trend rather than a lifestyle? Is it still about anarchy and aggression? Has anti-fashion became fashion?
