The Carnaby Street that we know today started life in 1957 when John Stephen opened up a men’s clothing boutique. It soon attracted like-minded businesses, and within a decade the street was full of fashionable shops selling outrageous outfits.

It gained world fame in the Swinging Sixties, when Carnaby Street and led the world in fashion.

  • parloman – “Yeah anyone who is expecting austin powers to run down it with a big brass band are going to be disappointed.”
  • bobby – “I was very disappointed with carnaby street. Maybe it was good once, in the 1960s, but now it is just the same as any other street with the same kind of shops which you would never normally go in. It's nice to take a detour just to see what its like, and to say that you've been there, because its not very far away from oxford street, but its not the kind of place that I would ever go back to.”
