Grunge_ This subculture emerged in the early 90's with the rise in popularity of Seattle Sound.
This subculture based themselves on an anti-fashion trend, layering up and not caring about ripped or tarnished clothing.  It was not only popular in Seattle but also in the UK. Photographer Corrine Day was said to have promoted the "Heroin Chic" look when photographing a young disheveled Kate Moss. This trend has seen a recent revival in terms of its fashion aspect with fashion designers such as rag & bone and philip lim embracing a new grunge style.
Music_ Nirvana, Hole, The Smashing Pumpkins
Fashion_ Plaid, denim, hoodys, "kinderwhores", floral.
