Inspiration
The collections are violent, fatal and uncompromising and demands of it's consumers to be rigorously individual, relentlessly attractive, with a strong and obstinate mentality. Degernerotika gets inspired by many origins from the past, above all surrealism, dada and also numerous styles in fashion that pursued extravagant expressions, it is definitely an avant-garde fashion name who needs to be remembered.
