Runway Flash – Gam Rock

Glitz is taking a gritty turn on the runways, with bedazzled legwear outfitting punk- and grunge-inspired ensembles. Capturing the D.I.Y. spirit of the era, sheer tights and trouser socks are sporting an edgy jumble of rhinestones, studs and sequins. Foil applications and Lurex fibers offer smoother, subtler shine; and coarse, heavy-gauge yarns further dim the sparkle. – Nivara Xaykao
