This year’s Style Runway Fashion Show’s theme was “Punk In the City”, which was strongly inspired by Punk’s influence on fashion over the past several decades, as well as influenced by the current exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Punk: Chaos to Couture. Ranging from casual wear to formal wear, Style Runway showcased layered separates and punk-inspired clothing that expressed the individuality and forcefulness of the youth who started the Punk movement.
