We speak to four different streetwear fashion groups who reveal what it's like to be a part of their culture, the reasons behind their style as well as their favourite music.

Charlotte,18, and Lucy, 19, are goths from Gloucestershire.

Their style is heavily influenced from their love for music. Charlotte says: "My style comes from my dad. He loves The Cure, I've got their frontman Robert Smith on my leg (below). I was raised on this music and it's why I named after a Cure song called 'Charlotte Sometimes'".

The artists on top of their playlists include Bauhaus, The Cure and Marilyn Manson, Melanie Martinez and Years & Years.

"Charlotte is more of a traditional goth, whereas I'm more of a glam goth - I wear short skirts and a bit of colour. The make-up ties it all together, especially when it's really exaggerated", says Lucy.

"It takes me about an hour to get ready. I wear a lot of makeup and usually buy it from Superdrug. MUA is one of my favourite brands - I prefer cheaper make-up as you're going to take it off at the end of the day anyway!"

Piercings are an important part of the overall look as well as the clothes they choose to wear - the girls shop in high street stores H&M, Primark and Topshop or websites Dolls Kill, Black Craft and Killstar.
