What is Steampunk Fashion?
Steampunk fashion is about clothes, jewelry, makeup and hair styles inspired by an imaginary or science-fiction romantic era, in which, the concept is similar to what can be found in the British Victorian times in the 1800’s or even similar to the American wild west of the same era. At the same time, this fashion incorporates many elements from the European Industrial Revolution, where machines where mainly steam-powered, which is where the steampunk word has its origins. An example of a steampunk movie is Sherlock Holmes.
Some times, the steampunk fashion is also set in a futuristic time, where the story is about the lack of fuels or lack of modern technology, all depleted by the chaos of a post-apocalyptic era.
The clothes of this fashion, includes bustiers, jackets and the famous round type sunglasses and it has remained unchanged until the present since it emerged. During the decades of the 80’s and 90’s, the steampunk fashion kept growing in parallel with other fashions like the punk and Gothic movements.
In an everyday use, the steampunk movement is a well accepted fashion and can be very elegant too, as many manufacturers are inspired by it when designing their apparel, jewelry and accessories.
