What is Heath Goth Fashion
When diving into the history of health goth fashion, it’s important to understand the roots of goth fashion. Goth emerged in the late 1970s and early 1980s as a dark-themed offshoot of punk rock music. The term “goth” is an adjective for describing a feeling or style of the macabre, especially a dark, gloomy, or joyless one. On the other hand the health in “health goth”, comes from health and fitness fashion. With bold white lettering and patterns typically plastered on fitness clothes mixed with a black gothic aesthetic, heath goth is the new streetwear techwear style.
On the other hand, techwear is a fashion based on the use of functional materials, and a look that incorporates MOLLE webbing, hi-tech fabrics, sometimes even neoprene. This fashion was started when people were trying to put an emphasis on substances such as gore-tex in order to build some kind of ethereal experience. Other than its quality materials, goth ninja or techwear fashion is all about a dark and practical esthetic. Black outfits, filled with straps, pockets, buckles, and belts have been a part of techwear since the beginning. When it comes to health goth, many say that it is a subgenre of goth ninja or techwear.
