The Supremacy–Street Culture
The Supremacy–Street Culture; Understanding why and how this culture remains influential in shaping attitudes, appearances
and the concept of 'cool'.The term 'street culture' is hardly anything new, neither are its associated values and lifestyles
of individualism and expression; yet a way of living that was once rooted in oppression and exclusion from mainstream society
has continued its influence in multitudes in contemporary cultures, even entering the realms of high fashion catwalks.
My dissertation aims to question the key to street culture's ability to influence trends, attitudes and appearances, the hype in street
cultural movements and its inextricable relationship with the concept of 'cool'.
