What is the origin of goth?Note:
Uh, hard one. First off, you have to take into account the diversity of goth fashions. [ The more romantic looks come from an idealized version of middle ages through Victorian garb, while the cyber look is inspired by visions of a future distopia. The mainstream and original goth looks evolved from the post punk movement started in the later 70s and early 80s. Originally, goths wore black versions of what punks were wearing, plus lots of fishnets and black eyeliner. Gothic fashion icons like Siouxsie Sioux and Robert Smith (although he's not goth per say) helped solidify the new look, but the emerging of different musical movements within the gothic movement in the 80s expanded the gothic fashion choices. There are currently many different goth looks, all with their own history and meaning. Voltaire's book "What Is Goth?" does a decent version of showing all these different looks, but you have to keep in mind he's making fun of all of them. http://answers.yahoo.com/question/?qid=20061030194926AAt40UL
