When I came to interview for my summer internship a few months ago, my dad and I passed this enormous museum on our way to dinner. We both immediately noticed the word FASHION showcased on a banner. I knew I had to see what this was all about, but I had no idea what was type of fashion I’d find. It ended up taking me an entire month to explore and figure out that I have found a fashion jackpot.
The punk exhibit is nothing like you’ll ever see. While I was walking around admiring the designs I couldn’t help but think about how often we neglect to create our own fashions. Each room is filled with “do it yourself” fashions, but they’re all punk inspired. Some of the DIY items that are been commonly used are studs, spikes, chains, zippers, bottle tops and safety pins. My personal favorite of them all is the safety pin look.
Here are some modern DIY fashion style’s that are edgy and fun to create.
“The Costume Institute of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, examines punk’s impact on high fashion from the movement’s birth in the 1970s through its continuing influence today. The exhibition is made possible by Moda Operandi.”
