80s kitch glamour and glits!

hot pants by Agoraphobix

oh the 80's!
the colors, the cuts the over sized items and total camp nicknaks that
are just too damn adorable to ignore. It was a special period by far
( to my opinion the fashion nation was swept away on some extremely
strong hallucinogenic drug). 
I find the color schemes, iconic symbols and cuts fascinating and I try to incorporate them in almost every item I do (I also have 2 main lines that feature this love, Dance On Glass and Street Beat). 
So I decided to dedicate this blog to the wonderful 80's, not actual items from the period, but inspired by, adapted and made to bring back the spirit of the time with an edge to suit this
time. shall we call them 80's inspired street style items?
So lets go!

I will start my whirlwind tour with some uber cute tops, this kiss print princess top is a homage to
the prints I was talking about earlier, and the pink and black color scheme complements each other so well!! Going on with this color them, this pink and black polka dot and zipper print bustier is just iresistable, so special and so out there you have to love it!

Thinking of a vixen look? try this neon green and skull print corset, it always reminds me of the
gloomy goth clubs of the 80's but with a death rock twist.
This neon splatter denim and leatherette waist clincher is definitely one of a kind, Im so in love with this denim fabric! you can match it up with these neon splatter denim pants made out of the same fabric:)
