In the words of the creator/artist/Baltimore royalty, John Waters about Baltimore fashion in an interview given by City Paper:
John Waters: “You should never spend a lot of money on clothes. We have great thrift shops here, always have. You should go buy that thing no one would wear at your school and wear that. Then fashion designers will copy that. It will cost a nickel now in the bottom of the bin at Value Village, but then it will cost $2,000 in New York. So start your own fashion.”
