1960s MOD

Hi all,

Here's a little doco found on YouTube about the mod era. The fashions in some of the pics will give you a taste of mod style.

Mod lifestyle emerged in England in early 1960s, and it is sometimes referred to as modism. Elements of the mod lifestyle include music, clothes, dancing and motorscooters. Working-class kids, inspired by the new British rock, came together to create a new culture. As if by spontaneous combustion, that culture quickly spread beyond England to the entire world; eventually it defined a generation. Since the mid 60s, the mainstream media often used the term mod in a wider sense to describe anything that was popular, fashionable or modern.
