There are a lot of homeless people in the US, and you wouldn't know they were homeless just from looking at them. What I think you meant was the anti-fashion crowd which includes fashion movements such as grunge and punk. Punks deconstructed the current fashion trends as a rebellion against the mainstream, and people at the time thought they looked "homeless". Of course, the punk fashion got usurped by the mainstream, but there's still a sense of rebellion when it comes to punk clothing because of the culture (and music) that surrounded the fashion. Blahblahblah... the history of fashion... Personally, I love a lot of fashion, especially when it errs on the side of costume. I love lolita, steampunk, goth, grunge, rockabilly, cowgirl, etc. I think they all have something to offer. Right now I'm trying to make a pinafore-style skirt.
