What is 90s New York fashion?
In the 1990s, grunge Fashion took over America. What was once a fad soon became an identity for many young people during that time. What has become known as the grunge look, with layers of over-sized flannel shirts and combat boots, was made popular by bands like Nirvana. Some people are speculating that this trend will make it’s way back into mainstream fashion in 2017.
Where are we seeing this style today?
Designers are coming out with collections inspired by 1990s fashion. These collections are not only bringing back 1990s street style and iconic trends, but also putting the spotlight on forgotten icons and the people who paved the way for the future of fashion. Due to this current revival, many contemporary artists have been called to revisit their favorite stars from then.
Why is it coming back?
It’s been close to two decades since the ’90s ended, but Fashion from that decade never seems to go out of style. From The Jersey Shore to the Magnificent Mile in Chicago, America was graced with an unparalleled sense of style from the so-called Renaissance (or Golden) Age of Hip Hop. Gangsta rap and Supreme-filled skateboard culture gave birth to what some considered beautiful, young hood celebrities and icons like Jadakiss, Biggie Smalls, Tupac Shakur and Slick Rick.
