An Eye on London: Carnaby Street

6o's are here to stay!

Carnaby Street is a shopping street in London, UK. In the 1960's, it was popular with followers, both hippie and mod style. There were many independent fashion boutiques and designers such as Mary Quant. There were also a wide range of music bars and bands such as The Beatles came to work, shop and socialize. Carnaby Street became one of London's coolest destination in the Swinging 60's.

Now the area of Carnaby Street has been through a lot of changes but if you really explore Carnaby Street, you'll find somethings never change.

Here are some snapshots I took of style that were influenced by the 60's. From the beaded dress ( Diana Ross, The Supremes), mini dress ( Mary Quant, Twiggy), cardigans to the stockings. With all the style and similar surroundings, you can't help yourself but to think you're living the past.
