How and why students are reviving 90s fashion

“Yo, I’ll tell you what students want, what they really really want.” They want a retro sports tee, denim jacket, bandanas, mom jeans and oversized patterned shirts. The 1990s. A decade which evidently blessed us with The Spice Girls, Tamagotchis and Cher’s yellow plaid outfit in Clueless.

The release of the Brexit white paper finally answered some questions that the public – and UK parliament – have been asking.

The paper significantly fails to map out the future of immigration in the UK – but this is to be revised and remade in a second paper this coming Autumn. Students and young people appear to be favoured above all in the document. The absence of solutions to immigration has been filled instead with propositions to…
