Moke

Sadly, we've just been told of the death of Johnny Moke, aged just 64.

Moke (real name John Rowley) was a prime mover in the early 60s mod scene, later becoming a leading fashion designer and retailer, as well as being one of the main contributors to Richard Barnes' classic Mods book.

Paul Gorman has put together a fitting obituary for the man over at The Look site – it's well worth five minutes of your time. Check it out via the link below.
