This clear backpack allows a peak into Salina's personal belongings. It's called transparency, and it is on trend for nostalgic 1990s kids. These black suede creepers are from London based T.U.K, punk-fashion pioneer. They are sold at FashionNation and online here.
Salinas used colored hair, a "Hey Arnold!" crop-top, UNIF's iridescent Meta skirt, available here, fishnets, face gems and T.U.K. creepers to pull off her artRave ensemble. Her fashion perspective is influenced by rave-wear, current Internet trends, and 1990s popular culture. She remains true to herself and is unafraid to go against the grain by wearing blue lipstick.
Always have fun with your street-style, Denver.
