Skinheads vs Rockstars
This project explores the social tensions in the 60s by comparing the excessive lifestyle of the pop and rock stars of the time to the difficulties of the working class.
Skinheads and Mods were a result of unemployement affecting working class people who were angry and felt left out in a changing world. By investing in high quality clothing made in England, the movement created a distinct style.
Unfortunately the social tensions also led to violence, putting the movement into a bad light which made people fear them on the street.
In my design work I losen up the strict skinhead style and put some of the crazy freedom rock stars lived into their clothing. With my work I promote love and fight violence.
