Growing up in L.A. and frequenting nightclubs, art shows and punk gigs, Danny Fuentes became a fan, follower and friend to purveyors of alternative fashion, which led to creating spaces for them in his own gallery and club events. In his Friday fashion feature, Fuentes shoots and spotlights the most creative creatures and colorfully caustic clothes whores in Los Angeles, beloved in the clubs and on Instagram. Says Fuentes:
Los Angeles is a breeding ground for creativity, a place where an excess of events offers opportunities to dress up and soak up the culture seven nights a week if one desires. You can make the weekend last all seven days if you really want to, and make going out an extension of your livelihood. In L.A. less is more and more is always more interesting We live in a post–David Bowie universe, a generation of post-everything. In some way or another, everything has already been done. But there are those who pull from the past to help shape the future. Those who make it a mission to stand out, provoke, question norms and create dialogue just by stepping out in a public situation and forcing you to look in awe at the dazzling display of their sheer existence.
Behold this week's spotlight on personal style so wild, it's lethal.
Musician and nightlife personality
Who are you?
I’m Plasmic! I’m a musician and producer creating rage-filled femme electro-punk.
What are you inspired by?
Mark Mothersbaugh, Peaches, Fever Ray, and anything pink. Every look I do is centered around the shade. My aesthetic is a gender binary nightmare.
What are you wearing?
With this look I was going for Tom of Finland biker with a Plasmic twist. My Yamaha Reface Keytar is my weapon of choice, and the custom Plasmic chain is from Coup de Colere.
