Punk subculture emerged in the United Kingdom, Australia, and the United States in the mid-1970s.
Rebel fashion evolved into a highly theatrical use of clothing, hairstyles, cosmetics, tattoos, and jewelry. Early punk fashion adapted everyday objects for aesthetic effect: ripped, slashed and torn clothing was held together by safety pins and customized by embellishing it with metal studs, spikes and zippers. Often safety pins and razor blades were used as jewelry.
With a rebel yell, punk fashion and music has had an explosive influence on fashion. As a style, with its eclectic mixing of stylistic references, punk is essentially about freedom of expression and anti-establishment rebellious energy. The heart of rock and roll music.
