From Fetish to Fashion: The Rise of Latex

Once shocking and fetishistic, rubberwear has since been embraced by fashion on catwalks and the red carpet. It’s been an eventful journey, writes Cassidy George. For more than 50 years, fetishistic themes and iconography have been increasingly integrated into the changing face of fashion. But while high heels, corsets and leather have become par for the course, rubberwear retains its ability to turn heads and raise eyebrows.
