The King’s Road Music & Fashion Trail is a series of five downloadable film clips celebrating the historical and cultural significance of key locations in the King’s Road – one of the most famous thoroughfares in the world where successive waves of stylistic and musical revolutions have been created over the decades.
Appealing to pop culture fans and casual visitors alike, the Trail centres on three-minute filmed documentaries presenting the histories of buildings which once housed such iconic stores as the world’s first boutique – Mary Quant’s shop Bazaar – Granny Takes A Trip, whose customers included The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin, and Johnson’s The Modern Outfitters, which was frequented by Madness, George Michael and The Clash.
This project was part of InTransit Festival 2012, sponsored by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.
