Bleaching and Acid Washed Skirt
This is a soft denim acid washed skirt that I bought from a thrift store. Acid washed skirts became popular in the late 1980s. Acid washing is similar to bleaching – breaking the fiber of the material creating white streaks.
The term “acid-washed” is actually a misnomer since no acid is used during the process. Due to the revival of 1980s and 1990s fashion style, today’s women street fashion include tattered jeans and acid-washed pairs of denim. You can check cool DIY bleached and tattered jeans on Pinterest.
Dr. Martens and Pop Culture
Not of a die-hard fan of skinheads or punk culture but it feels so good to wear them now without being labeled. Today it’s becoming mainstream. Wearing a pair of docs became too mainstream when Miley Cyrus wore hers in her controversial “Wrecking Ball” video. People hated her for murdering music and Dr. Martens.
Cannibal Ferox and Violent Films
Considered as one of the most violent films in the 1980s, Cannibal Ferox was banned in 31 countries for explicitly showing animal torture and slaughter with disturbing violent images. The film is another video showing cannibalism and filmmakers’ attempts to introduce torture films to the general audience. I hate violence, I love the shirt though. Bought this awesome shirt from SplatterClothing Choppingmall. Hopefully, they’ll have BTK shirts soon.
