When our good friends from Las Vegas invited us to a MOD weekend in Palm Springs, we didn’t know what a MOD weekend was! Anyway this is why we travel, to experience something new, so of course we said yes and made reservations. Palm Springs is a desert city in California and is a Mecca for its mid-century modern architecture and design, or so we learnt. What is MOD you may be thinking, it is a weekend to celebrate all things mid century modern. The event runs from Thursday through to Sunday focusing on fashion, art, music, cocktails and architecture. The weekend featured special events with renowned artist SHAG (aka Josh Agle). Most people dress in the fashions of the period so we visited some thrift stores looking for suitable clothing for the event, which in itself was great fun.
The weekend consisted of great music, room parties, a fashion show, meeting new friends, a relaxed atmosphere and fun times. We would highly recommend MOD and we are thankful for the opportunity to experience something a little bit different, we are hoping to return in 2017.
