Fashion is supported by an agressively non-conforming youth culture. They see fashion as not just utilitarian but as a form of self-expression. By intuitively incorporating this artform into their lifestyles, they publicly declare the type of human being they intend to be and the the type of human experiences that have shaped them. They relate to the world through a subculture existing on the web, in films, in comicbooks and games as they search for their place in society. Existing in a state of "in-betweenness" between childhood and adulthood that allows for a purity of mind. The “in betweenness” of youth is the foundation for innovation in fashion.
