What are the origins of streetwear

The origins of streetwear can be traced back to the 1980s in Los Angeles, California.

At the time, the city was experiencing a rise in popularity for skateboarding and surf culture, which led to the creation of clothing brands that focused on these subcultures. These brands, such as Stussy and Fuct, combined elements of hip-hop, punk, and surf culture to create unique and expressive clothing that appealed to a younger, countercultural audience.

As streetwear gained popularity, it began to incorporate other influences, such as Japanese fashion and street art, and became a global phenomenon.
