Script:

Mod (from modernist) is a subculture that originated in London, England, in the late 1950s and peaked in the early-to-mid 1960s.

Dick Hebdige claims that the progenitors of the mod subculture "appear to have been a group of working-class dandies, possibly descended from the devotees of the Italian fashion style. As mod teens and young adults began using their disposable income to buy stylish clothes, the first youth-targeted boutique clothing stores opened in London in the Carnaby Street and Kings Road districts. Many mods used motor scooters for transportation, usually Vespas or Lambrettas

. This vehicle was a fashion accessory. Italian scooters were preferred due to their cleanlined, curving shapes and gleaming chrome.

The original mods gathered at all-night clubs such as The Roaring Twenties, The Scene, La Discothèque, The Flamingo and The Marquee in London to hear the latest records and to show off their clothes and dance moves.

My mom was a mod. She wore haute couture street fashion: perfectly crafted short hair, white tennis sneakers or boots, short skirts, and Twiggy eyelashes… and rode a Vespa type thing. She looked like she belonged in a Truffaut movie and adored Holly Golightly. She listened to Ska and Soul, read Sartre, and drank espresso.
