  • PUNKS an underground revolution Alison Grauso Katie Senate Theresa Yenouskas Callie Weldon
  • FOUNDATIONS OF PUNK ROCK Punk Rock was originally a term coined to describe the rebellious, angry, anti- political, underground music genre. Bands such as the MC5’s, The Ramones, The Velvet Underground, and The Fugs became widely popular in the mid 70’s.
  • THE ELECTRIC CIRCUS Location: New York, NY ➡ Where Punk Rock music originated and Punk Rock fans converged ➡ Acted as a fashion hub where styles, trends, and ideas were exchanged between Punk Rock fans ➡ Allowed the “loners” that were Punk Rock fans to feel part of a community of similar minds, music taste, and most importantly, fashion choices
  • PUNK ROCK INFLUENCES Fans emulated their favorite bands and imitated their “no rules apply” fashion sense The underground Punk culture was popular due to angst, shock value, and rebellion and, in turn, so was the street fashion
  • PUNK : HEAD TO TOE hair dyed unnatural colors such as red, pink, pale yellow ect hair was often partially shaved or chopped in unconventional ways powder white faces with blacked eyes and heavy eyeliner, even on men safety pins and chains were used as earrings and necklaces to add the sought after shock value to their ensemble
  • PUNK : HEAD TO TOE black leather jackets decorated with studs and rips useless zippers that were sewn into shirts and outerwear sleeveless shirts and jackets with offensive and sometimes pornographic images purposely dirty clothing that appeared grungy and held together with safety pins leather studded cufflinks and/or fingerless gloves
  • PUNK : HEAD TO TOE tight, skinny, jeans with rips, shreds and studs often the jeans came above the ankle exposing the popular Punk combat boots a bicycle chain was sometimes draped between the legs of left hanging out of the pocket patches and zippers were sewn into pants to add color and roughness to the look
  • EVOLUTION the clothing was originally a symbolic identity for early punks but now middle/upper class teens were wearing Punk fashions the fashion was no longer just about the music, it was now a widespread fashion movement and a statement against those who had not paid attention to teens in the past
  • PUNK GOES MAINSTREAM ➡ Vivienne Westwood was the first designer to adopt the Punk style ➡ Her partner, Malcolm McLaren of the Sex Pistols, allowed her to mass market her designs to Punk Rock fans ➡ Vivienne’s shop “translated the hard edges of street style in an interior filled with photos of a bombed-out, war torn, london.”

  • CONCLUSION The Punk subculture originated from the underground Punk Rock music scene It was a rebellious way for teens to create shock value with their clothing It quickly caught on to mainstream designers who used Punk Rock bands as their inspiration To this day, Punk fashion is still seen in various aspects of the fashion and music industry
  • QUESTIONS How did the Punk movement make its transition from music to fashion? What were some of the “shock value” items that Punks wore? How did the Punk Rock music reflect the Punk fashions?
