Grunge Street Fashion owning it to the worlds oldest profession; Prostitution
19th century prostitute in a brothel
Midnight Cowboy (1969) conveyed it to be a sleazy profession for a sleazy world, and Taxi Driver (1976) illustrated the vulnerability women were exposed to them in the industry. However, by the 1990’s and early 2000’s prostitution got romantic thanks to films like Pretty Woman and Moulin Rouge, where the look of a hooker has remained in our closest since.
The profession itself may prove controversial at dinner parties especially if thoughts on legalising prostitution again is to be discussed, but we cannot take away from them, that these hustler chicks word for their money. In this business, as ‘dirty’ as it can get, they prove to be resilient standing on the sides of roads even on the coldest nights; They stick together, support one another in this closely-knit community like a sisterhood cult, and quite frankly this inspires us.
