History


Punk rock fashion hit the scene more than 35 years ago, rebelling against the perceived pretentiousness of mainstream music and mainstream culture as a whole. Its movement was all about making a significant statement in handmade clothing that spits on materialism. But over time, the fashion world was finding inspiration in the underground punk rock movement. So much so that major fashion designers like Vivienne Westwood and Jean Paul Gaultier began using punk elements in their collections, and fashion magazines began featuring punk-inspired hairstyles and clothing. Today, the appeal of punk rock clothes crosses over several music genres and types of personalities.

Famous for its anti-establishment beliefs and hardcore music, punk rock fashion became a trend in the 1970s. This fashion trend has undergone several changes over the years and has a few variations. Some of those variations include hardcore, glam, pop-punk, and deathrock. Punk rock fashion as a genre began as a response to what musicians perceived as the "excesses" of mainstream rock music. It was during this period that it came to existence. It was popularized by several 1970s bands such as the Sex Pistols, the Clash, and the Ramones. Innumerable designers, including Vivienne Westwood, Givenchy, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Emilio Pucci, and Saint Laurent have created their takes on punk rock fashion for their collection. Subcultures such as cyberpunk, heavy metal, greasers, skinheads, industrial, and rude boys have been influenced by punk rock fashion. 

It also embraced badass anti-establishment views and a DIY ethos – punk clubs sprang up in old sheds and derelict warehouses across cities like London and New York, and fans began to assert a new style of dress. Punk rock clothes and subculture became a cult of DIY,hard-edged clothing for hard-edged people. Spiked hair, bullets, rivets, safety pins, and ripped jeans made punk fashion looks like the raging survivors of a musical apocalypse. The punk rock outfit trends gave way to faster styles such as hardcore and various offshoots such as post-punk. In the 1990s,

pop-punk rock bands such as Green Day and The Offspring brought punk back into the limelight, with a crisper, cleaner, more melodic sound. It remains one of the most influential alternative fashion subgenre and youth cultures, which has influenced the fashion industry from clothing (dresses, tops, t-shirts) and jewelry(rings, necklaces) to accessories.

The term 'punk rock' first appeared in the magazine Creem in 1971. It was not only used to describe aggressive and fast music but also the fashion associated with such music.

This fashion first emerged as an aggressive movement in the United Kingdom during the 1970s. Originally intended to be rebellious and confrontational, the trend was heavily influenced by the punk music scene.

In fact, to date, the designs of Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood continues to inspire people. Punk rock clothing was designed to offend the general population deliberately. Some people even tore and destroyed their shirts on purpose.
