The phenomenon of Russian 80s alternative fashion is unveiled at the Garage Center of Contemporary Culture in Moscow. The exhibition called 'Alternative Fashion before Glossies. 1985-1995' takes place between February 3 and March 13 and gives us an explanation of the phenomenon of alternative fashion. It arose at the mid-80s, with the beginning of perestroika when the spirit of freedom which soared in the air provoked a great boost to the alternative culture concentrated at the junction of rock and squat club communities. The interaction of underground and avant-garde artists, musicians, punk, rock and New Wave subcultures gave birth to the format of performances that replaced fashion shows and often took place at the concerts and streets in the centre of the city and demonstrated the shocking combination of textures and cut.
