Anti Prom 2014:  PUNK!

Yes, it’s that time of year again: students from the High School of Fashion Industries seeking ideas for outfits for the annual Anti Prom, on June 27th, 2014, visited NYPL’sArt & Architecture Collection last week. This year’s theme is Punk, so various books such as the Metropolitan Museum’s Punk: Chaos to Couture were shared, as well as photography books like The Ruins of Detroit. Graffiti, Grunge, distressed materials, black leather, ripped or safety pinned garments, even garbage bags used as fabric, were featured in fashion shots.
