Abstract

Hipsters are a contemporary postmodern subculture of young urbanites that have created their own visual identity through the clothing they wear. Since clothing is an important symbolic communicator that allows members of a subculture to identify individually and as a group, this essay will examine the material subtexts of three different Hipster subgroups found at Grenfell Campus through incorporating a contextual approach to the symbolic interaction perspective.
