Cultural Centre...

Carnaby Street was made popular by followers of the Mod style in the 1960s, and became closely associated with the Swinging Sixties, when many independent music shops, fashion boutiques, and designers such as Mary Quant were located there.

Many London male teenagers growing up in the 1960’s who wanted to dress Mod also shopped at the Squire Shop or The Village Gate in Soho or Cassidy’s (in the Kings Road, Chelsea). Or if the lived in the suburbs and could not get into town they might ware Ben Sherman's famous Oxford-style button-down shirt.
