Blog: Never mind the catwalk...

Punk rockers The Sex Pistols have been voted the most influential band on British dress sense.
Studded leather jackets and offensive T-shirts are symbolic of the late 70s punk movement, inspired by top designers like Vivienne Westwood.
And the punk look edged out Michael Jackson's glove and Madonna's cone bra in a semi-serious poll by PRS for Music.
PRS also found in a 2,000 person survey from across the UK, that 40% of the population’s fashion tastes have been influenced by their music preference.
Men prove to be most likely to let their dress sense mirror their favourite music, at 41%, while 39% of women admit the same.
Ellis Rich, chairman of PRS, says: "Since the rise of pop music, it has become more and more common for the public’s dress sense to meet their music tastes. While bands like Abba got the ball rolling back in the 70’s, there has been an incredible emergence of new trends blossoming out of the music industry."
A personal favourite from the list - Oasis - came in tenth, despite the efforts of singer Liam Gallagher to set up his own clothing line last year.
