The most popular (not sure if that's the most appropriate word for it) anti-fashion subculture was the grunge movement of the 90s; the visual aesthetics were non-existent, with anything cheap and practical sufficing. This was seen as the ultimate anti-fashion statement, especially with the emphasis on high fashion and mainstream clothing seen during the decade. However, the media's obsession with grunge after the mainstream success of Nirvana's Nevermind album led to the apparent trivialising of the subculture, hence why it is argued that, like punk, grunge is dead.

Another key link between fashion and anti-fashion was Vivienne Westwood, whose use of punk and BDSM elements in her fashion shocked the fashion landscape; fitting, considering she considers the shock value of punk a key influence. Ms. Westwood's iconic designs may have led to punk fashion becoming more mainstream, but it's safe to say that her collections made a proud statement against the repeated trends and apparent importance of high fashion.
