Studs: THEN&&NOW

One of our interns decided that this past Spring while trying to find a job for the summer, that she would go out and buy fashion literature to get herself up-to-date. The book “…isms: Understanding Fashion” by Mairi Mackenzie helped her get a handle on what went on and now goes on in fashion.

Check out this nifty before and after of studded shoes–credited to come about in the 1970s with the punk movement……..

The shoe on the right is a collabo between Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren. In 1974 this was called “fetish wear.” OH MY!

Now check out our modern day fetish…..
