Below are three collages that highlight the difference between couture designers and Beaks of Eagles when it comes to such trim as grommets, pockets, and large 2″inch buttons.
For couture, trim is decoration. For us, trim are “signs” — signs of punk, signs of goth, signs of mod.

Post-Mod Fashion: “Signs without Significance”
What comes around goes around:
Mod goes from London in the 60s, resurfaces as Skin Girls /Rude Boys in the UK 70s, forks to Japan as Harajuku and Bosozoku, and now back to America as our Modpunk and Bosozoku Girl. Fashion is just not copied as it crosses boarders. There is an originality to copy, a postmodern “copy without an original” that at first glance is banal, but on closer examination is thrilling.
We at <beaks of eagles> are proud to be part of this “copy without an original” movement with our Post-Mod®, Sew Creepy ®, Modpunk®, and Calamity Jane™ line of clothes.
