The Ramones epitomize the 70’s – 80’s downtown NYC punk scene, both musically and in urban fashion. Their fashion, music and counter-culture position are an inspiration to me. They capture a mood that spurs my creativity and imagination. 70’s and early 80’s fashion has now become mainstream, emerging in pop culture music of today. It has, in some ways, because of this, made punk an alternative lifestyle, street and youth culture, acceptable and mainstream society. The very thing it originally opposed. Punk is a blending of many emotions … anger, frustration, euphoria, elation. It’s fighting for your life and your belief system. A constant endeavor to be heard, even if it’s counter. It’s your expression. Your revelation. That’s the Urban Edge.
