For anyone thinking about making a trip into London and visiting us on Carnaby Street over the next couple of weeks, this is well worth a visit...
Launching on Friday 26th February, ‘Carnaby Street: 1960 - 2010’ will celebrate 50 years of fashion and music.
The central feature of the show is a unique 3D timeline which illustrates key people, events and happenings in the area from being a green field site with a well and a scarecrow 500 years ago, to the iconic characters associated with Carnaby’s music heritage such as The Rolling Stones, Sex Pistols and Jimi Hendrix.
A limited edition book of the same title; ‘Carnaby Street: 1960 - 2010’ will support the exhibition and will feature images from ‘60s photographer Philip Townsend and exclusive interviews with people who have lived and worked in Carnaby including The Who’s Pete Townsend.
The exhibition and book are the work of acclaimed curators and fashion historians Judith Clark and Amy de la Haye, who have curated exhibitions at major international museums including the V&A and Mode Museum in Antwerp.
The exhibition, 38 Carnaby Street, will be open from 26th February until the beginning of April 2010 and is FREE admission. It will be followed by a series of events throughout 2010 to celebrate Carnaby’s 50th Anniversary including a live music weekend in June and a unique fashion show in September.
