The Steampunk Gazette

Always keen to keep ahead of what’s cool, something that has caught our eye recently is the fashion / literature and design genre of Steampunks.

Jessie became interested in Steampunks when she went to the Boomtown Fair festival this summer. Recently we noticed this publication advertised in ‘The World of Interiors’ magazine so we look forward to getting our hands on a copy when it is released next week.

Steampunks live in a style that takes inspiration from the Victorian / wild west era but also takes elements from science fiction and fantasy. It is a style that is incorporated through fashion, art, architecture and music culture. It takes inspiration from elaborate Victorian clothing and the fanatics are passionate about manufacturing machinery and gadgets that were inspired by fictional machinery that came from Victorian culture and stories.

This was one of the amazing inventions Jessie saw at Boomtown, we love it!
