Inspiration by rock fashion

To be a successful fashion designer, an individual has to show high levels of creativeness that enables him or her to design something unique that pleases his customers. Thus, extensive research in this industry is not an optional, but rather a requirement. Fashion is a popular trend, particularly in dressing and ornaments as well as the manner of behavior (Laing, 2015). Given the competitiveness of the industry, different designers have taken different lines of career such as vintage fashion or rock fashion. This assignment will attempt to explore various aspects of rock fashion.

Rock fashion is the clothing, hairstyles, and modification of the punk subculture. Often rock fashion differs widely, ranging from Vivienne Westwood designs to dress- down look of North American hardcore.   This fashion may not be popular in the modern era, but it was trending back in the 1970s in the United Kingdom as well as the United States of amerce. To most individuals, rock fashion by the general is the refusal to conform and thus, rock outfits may range from, a simple t-shirt and ripped jeans to a studded leather jacket with torn fishnet stockings. However, the trademark of this fashion was the spiked knee-high boots as well as hand gears (Robb, 2012). Many factionists believe that this fashion style was widely inspired by rock and roll genre of music that was popular in the late 1950s and it originated from the inner city America. Besides, rock fashion may be a combination of other subcultures and art movements such as glam rock, skinheads, rude boys, greasers, and mods. In the early day, rock fashion was used to send messages, especially from one rock music band to another. In this modern era for an individual to go full rock style, he or she has to wear band t-shirts, try plaid, go oversized as well as think about their color scheme.
