Altogether, the six pieces make a very stimulating documentary, and a necessary reminder for fashion enthusiasts that no trend is completely organic or original — all ideas come from somewhere. The film follows fashion history of subcultures from the ‘Teddy Boys’ to the ‘Punks,’ leaving no trend neglected.
