Subcultures

“a minority youth culture whose distinctiveness depended largely on the social class and ethnic background of its members; often characterized by its adoption of a particular music genre”

Youth subcultural groups are segregated by different beliefs, race, ethical background and class. It’s also a combination of “encoding and decoding” of social groups. Each group have their own adaption to music, style and language.Youth subcultures are man-made societies, which all follow different ethic behaviours and style. That may being either a particular signature hairstyle that group may have a particular styled or tailored uniform for their individual group. The main subcultures which still trend on were Flappers, young girls wearing red lipstick dressing older for their age, Mods who like scooters and parker jackets, Teddy boys would dress up as wealthy men in well-tailored suits and Rockers who were into rock “n” roll music, motorbikes and Goth fashion.

aaa

Youth subcultures were created in order for youths to make their own society and identity as individuals. Subcultures were not passed onto the generation, either someone had joined youth subcultural groups to rebel against their society or have conformed into that individual group by peer pressure or mass media.

“Youth is a further extension of the same process of institutional separation or differentiation”

sssss

Katy Perry is known for her obsession for retro fashion, experimenting different styles from the past history, contemporising them so the trend into today’s generation.
