A performer starring in the stage production of The Wedding Singer has spoken of his love of 80s fashion, dazzling socks and all.
Jonathan Wilkes, who plays a lead role in the staged performance of the blockbuster, told the Chorley Citizen that the 80s fashions were brilliant, even though he was only a child at the time.
"I can remember all the big barnets and seeing my sister going out with a Wham 'Relax' T-shirt and fluorescent socks
and thinking 'I have got to get
some of those'," he confessed.
Wilkes could be cheered to know that on many recent catwalks, the 80s look had firmly returned, although showcasing fluorescent tights
rather than socks
Following retro fashion offerings by style guru Phi at the recent New York Fashion Week, TV's Padma Lakshmi told the Dallas News that the designer has successfully combined Day-Glo tights
, creating a dark, edgy but sexy look.
