THE WILD ONES | TRENDS – March to the Beat of Your Own Drum

With the recent MET Gala, PUNK: Chaos to Couture, it got me thinking about the ethos of punk.

In this commercialized world of fashion where what’s ‘in’ and what’s ‘out’ is dictated to us by so many forces, it is easy to get caught up in an obsession of wearing the latest trends.  There is fear that with so many proverbial eyes on us, one may feel like they are trying too hard if they stand out.  When I think about what punk is in a modern sense relating to fashion, I instantly go to women who push the boundaries and consistently dress for themselves as an expression of their creativity, regardless of the social pressures to conform; women who march to the beat of their own drum!

Tess Yopp, Hanne Gaby Odiele, Ulyana Sergeenko and Michelle Violy Harper aren’t necessarily punk in our traditional understanding with piercings and Mohawks, athough they use clothing as a way of making a statement which is very much the ethos of  punk.
