In Grenzen frei Mode, Fotografie, Underground in der DDR 1979–89

Fashion in the former East Germany was inconceivable without its political dimension. If some individuals moved freely, up to a point, with their collections, others tested the limits with their provocative look: ignoring the teenage fashion on offer from the state’s retail chains HO and KONSUM, the alternative East German fashion scene displayed its need for individuality and sensuality. In principle, a lack of creativity was not unique to the official East German fashion, but there were certain tendencies to counter the uniform look with individuality.
