Torn tights trends as grunge returns
Women everywhere could soon be hacking at their hosiery with scissors as that most diverse of fashion styles - grunge - looks to be returning to the catwalks.

Female fashion during the grungy 90s favoured ripped tights, matched with bold Doc Martins and feminine dresses and skirts and now Alexander Wang has been dressing his models in hacked-at-hosiery and stocking caps, it has been reported.

New York's Daily News suggests that the designer's rocky appeal suggests grunge is back in style.

"With a Clinton running for president, a spinoff of the small-screen hit 'Beverly Hills 90210' in development and the Stone Temple Pilots reuniting, it seems inevitable that fashion from the early 1990s will also be returning," it comments.

Fashion resource Style.com described Wang's latest offerings as looking "sexy-tough" and industrial.
