1980′s Costumes


The 1980s! A decade filled with cultural and economic revolutions, the 1980′s are known not only for major world events, but also for the fashion! The new music scene exploded in this era, the fashion mirroring what happened in the music scene at the time. Madonna and Michael Jackson led the way for pop music, with other huge stars such as Cyndi Lauper, Billy Idol and Kiss remembered not only for their music, but for their interesting fashion sense. For the men, this decade is littered with mullets, mohawks, piercings, tattoos, studded leather jackets and more. For women, fluoro coloured tulle and petticoat skirts were in fashion, brightly coloured fishnet stockings and leg warmers, converse shoes, shoulder padded jackets, lots of beads and jewellery and fluffed up hair.
