My name is Samantha Scarlette, I am an alternative rock singer and radio host .

Ming's: How do you view GRUNGE? Samantha Scarlette: I like Grunge. It not only represents good music , but it also was a very cool fashion style in the 1990's . It is also my personal favorite . It has been making a comeback in recent years . I am very happy about that .

M: How do you describe your own personal style ? S: My inspirations are Courtney Love, 90s Grunge Vibe + Goth and high end. My personal style is the convergence of the 1990s , dominated by black . I am very excited to wear Marc Jacobs today . When I think of Grunge, I think of one of the most iconic photographs of Marc Jacobs line in the 1990's, two supermodels, a black girl and white girl, sitting on the grass , wearing Marc 's Perry Ellis flannels and Nirvana shirts. It inspires me to this day .

M: Fashion , is it constantly being repeated ? S: There are actually many examples . Not only in Grunge, but the mainstream fashion of the late 1990s was inspired by the 1960s; many of the big fluffy skirts of the 1980s were inspired by the Victorian era ( one example is Princess Diana's wedding dress ). I think that the clothing of the early 21st century was influenced by the 1970s . So , yes , everything will repeat and develop , and the coolest thing about the 90s of Grunge is its uniqueness .Now it is back , I think it's great ."
