No major style change ever started with people buying what was being offered as the season's fashions.
Grunge, like much of the 60s counterculture style, came from people rejecting commercial offerings and putting together looks made of thrift store or military surplus clothing.
Punk the same, with some judicious cutting, ripping, and attaching of safety pins, dog collars and S&M gear.
A lot of 70s (western) style came from "cultural tourism", with travelers bringing back styles or items from India or South America, for example.
As long as people feel they can only wear what is offered in the clothing stores, there will be no change.
after all, it was you and me
