/ Goth scene in Poland
You wouldn't believe the stuff young people used to wear back in the eighties in Poland. ;-) We were very adventurous and anarchistic. Reality sucked bad, so we just did our thing and couldn't care less. I'd say so-called "modern" youth is extremely tame and unimaginative by comparison.
And because there was basically nothing in the shops back then, we used to trawl through parents' wardrobes, flea markets, and other unlikely places (not charity shops or "łachmyciarnie" existed in Poland then), and then remake, dye, take in, shorten, whatever, until the desired result. ;-)
I particularly remember one cute guy waiting for a concert at Riviera-Remont. He was dressed all in black, had the tightest jeans you could imagine, and the jeans were very decoratively torn on his bottom, revealing... red underpants. Awww... all the girls were swooning over his fashion statement... ;-) Bye the bye, getting your hands on red underwear in eighties Poland must have been a task in itself - I guess our generation used up all the red and black fabric dye in the country ;-)
The way young people dress nowadays is really depressing me. No creativity, no personal touch whatsoever.
lol Now how did I survive here being a punk rocker as adolescent?
You too? Greetings! ;-) Wasn't it loads of fun?
