One of the top trends to come down in Fall 2009 is Rocker Chic. A cross between 80’s Glam Rock with a dash of Biker inspiration Runway Daily showed designers as diverse as Balmain and William Rast sending it down the runway. The look relies heavily on leather, is mostly black and definitely sexy tough. I wondered though could Handmade handle the look? I mean a lot of people still think of handmade as quilting, crocheting and tie dye. So I set out to create the Rocker Chic look from handmade and Oh the Shops I Found!
My first priority was the pants, leather preferably and black. Surprisingly I found quite a few options. On the one end you have Behrle Leather with custom made leather pants that pack tons of attitude, but, be prepared to pay a hefty price. My favorite? Black Market Baby black leather panel leggings.
