Recently I have been really fascinated by 'punk rock' fashion. The rockers look so raw and honest with their fashion. It's like their jackets say "This is me. Take it or leave it."
I walked into a party and was surrounded by people of all ages wearing studded leather jackets. Each jacket was different; some had been painted, patched, written on, buttoned... You name it! After asking a few people if they could help me make a jacket that was similar I found out you are supposed to stud your own jacket (they looked at me like I was crazy when I asked them to stud one for me) for them it was a "rite of passage".
What an awesome way to express your views, beliefs, and loves! Stud away my little treasures!
