I found a flannel shirt in my local charity shop the other day and I couldn't resist to buy it. The flannel shirt was a very practical choice by people in North America but in the 90's became the symbol of Seattle Grunge movement and everybody that wanted to be in that tribe was wearing one of them. I was very young in the 90's, but I remember when I was about 12 years old, I was wearing waistcoats, caps, and plaid shirts around my waist. I was a real tomboy at the beginning of my teen years. My older brother was more into Hip Hop and Rap, but I was definitely a Nirvana, Pearl Jam kind of girl.
I watched the documentary Hype this weekend and it was very interesting how Punk Rock developed into Grunge, how grunge started as a music movement for young people to express themselves, but the media made it very commercial and some how became a trend. I think Kurt Cobain wasn't interested in all the attention he got. Being famous wasn't what he wanted to be, so I think that's why he probably felt trapped in that circle of fame and money that sometimes could be lonely and fake. Do you have any memories of the 90's? What do you feel about the fashion industry using these movements as 'trends'?
