A sinister organisation is patrolling the streets in pursuit of fashion defectives in this short kids’ series from Granada TV. Their mission is to declare war on subversives.

“Detrendifiers” are the ruthless stormtroopers who are determined to clean up the streets of illegal modes and outlawed fashion. This is the reality of life under the National Cool Board, led by the villainous Cashman (Roger Daltrey from The Who).

“The Frontiers of Style” (FOS) are freedom fighters for fashion liberation. They pout, preen, posture and pose their way to stardom.
