    blog image 100 Ideas that Changed Street Style is a look-by-look dissection of the key ideas that changed the way we dress - from the middle of the 20th century to the present day - explaining the most iconic items of clothing and how they were worn, what the look was born of, its cultural background, how it was received and how it still resonates in fashion today. The modern wardrobe owes its development not just to fashion designers in Paris or Milan but also to gangs and movements brought together by a shared appreciation of music, sport or a particular underground culture, and a certain style that defines membership. These styles have rocked establishments, expressed social division as much as they have united people, spread around the world and, above all, transformed dress for a wider public.

    Now you have the chance to win a complete set of the 100 Ideas series and feast your eyes on the biggest aspects of our visual culture, from film to graphic design and beyond. Just have a look at the photograph below and tell us which British subculture and style is depicted. Two runners-up will receive a copy of 100 Ideas That Changed Street Style. Competition ends on Monday 26 May midnight GMT. Good luck!

    Update -- winner: Meike Zane runners-up: Lilla Garayova, Pierre Eymery
