For the past few days i have been re-reading one of my favourite coffee table books. The book is an illustrated biography of Kurt Cobain, called "Cobain Unseen" by Charles R. Cross. I should probably let you all know now that i am a massive fan of Nirvana and Kurt Cobain. The biography includes photographs and art work by Kurt that many people have never seen before, and the personal notes from his diary... the dude was deep, and also very troubled.

It turns out that finding grunge runway pictures from the 90's is pretty much impossible. I really wanted to include pictures of the 1993 spring collections by Anna Sui, and Marc Jacobs for Perry Ellis. I did however find both their collections including Oscar de la Renta's in one youtube video, check it out HERE. They introduced the whole Grunge fashion scene that was influenced a lot by the music and youth of the early 90's. Nirvana perhaps not only changed the music scene, but also inspired many designers at the time.  So this post is the outcome of my sudden "grunge inspiration", it's very different to my usual style, but you gotta mix it up sometimes. Enjoy!!

Also just want to extend a big thank you to Laila at EnvySplendour for the feature, go check out her blog if you haven't already!
