Trend inspiration: Mod

Post image for Trend inspiration: Mod

Stepping into my mod world…

When free people launched this trend I became all nostalgic, being British I studied this movement through my fashion and design course and feel honored that one of the significant designers of this time is from my homeland Wales. When I think of MOD I think of Mary Quant amongst other things. She was a Welsh fashion designer and British icon, who was instrumental in the mod fashion movement; she was one of the designers who took credit for inventing the miniskirt and hot pants and showed a generation how to dress to please themselves, she created the ‘London Look’ that was so apparent during this time.

What mod means to me?

To me mod means ‘swinging London’ a time when fashion and style was everything, a time when mods and rockers became huge rebels and pop culture influenced fashion in a big way, psychedelic rock and bob haircuts… now I wish I was right in the thick of things in carnaby street London, 1960’s

Here’s my inspiration and a great editorial I found in self service magazine starring Arizona Muse and Daphne Groeneveld

items: russian print mini skirt, Mohair plaid mini skirt, polka dot blouse, rhiannon two tone platform

Fun, I think I’m more of a rocker than a mod
