Sub Cultures – Influencing The World of Fashion

There are so many different subcultures these days that sometimes it can be hard to keep up with them all. Indies, Goths, Emos, Hipsters, Punks and more make up our modern world. A lot of designer labels take inspiration from these sub cultures and use their clothing choices to influence their latest collections. This then descends to the catwalks and then on to the high street, where people will then pick up these pieces and add them to their wardrobes. You may not realise it, but there is sure to be something in your closet that has been influenced by a popular sub culture.

A lot of famous designers have made their name by creating collections inspired by these sub cultures. Vivienne Westwood is one example, she first started out by producing collections inspired by bikers and later went on to create pieces centred around punk rock trends. This propelled her to fashion fame and she is now one of the most well know clothing designers in the world.
