New Romantics.

New romanticism evolved in the UK music scene in the early 80s as a backlash to the punk movement. The scene was the epitome of glamour with the ostentatious clothes and partying attitude. This fashion was most definitely only for the outrageous! Clothing was dramatized to the full with a heavy through-line of fictional themes as well as an air of Hollywood glamour.  With the use of luscious fabrics, frills, colours and embellishments the style resembles that of different fashions in previous eras throughout history. The look was also inspired by the act of dressing up hence making the style more theatrical. 

The shoot above shot by Nick Haymes for Teen Vogue was inspired by the New Romantic theme however modernized to adapt to the changes in fashion and general interests in youth culture today.
