  18. 18. Look and styling of The Interpreters…<br />The band I’m working with mainly fall under the ‘indie’ subculture, as do their main fan base<br />The band I am working with are an indie/alternative band. So I’ve researched into the indie subculture. I think the current indie fashions are heavily influenced by the 60’s. Fashion icons such as The Beatles and Elvis Costello. The typical Beatles look was very much tailored, with tailored trousers, polo neck jumpers and blazers. Today you can see the Beatles/60’s influence on bands such as The Last Shadow Puppets, wearing polo necks and blazers in their videos. Whereas some indie bands like to keep the indie look alive and a bit different, by adding a twist to the typical indie look such as a cravat. The current indie fashion aims to stand out and be unique in the way they dress; bespoke fashion is very popular, this is done through vintage one of pieces, which also stems back to the 60’s fashion. I’d like to produce a video that combines both present day fashion and styling with some 60’s styling. <br />The band try to be as unique as they can be and don’t want to be labelled as a certain culture, because there are so many indie bands out there that are so similar. They tend to shop in bespoke and vintage shop, instead of places like Topman and H&M which means they can have that unique look and not be wearing what all their fans and other bands are wearing…..<br />
