Granny’s in Duke of York Square: Preview of the King’s Road Music + Fashion Trail
Last night saw a preview on a giant outdoor screen in Chelsea’s Duke Of York Square of a couple of the new films celebrating the golden age of London boutique culture.
The three-minute clips are each dedicated to a particular address, and make up the King’s Road Music + Fashion Trail, which goes live this weekend as part of RBKC’s InTRANSIT Festival.
We showed films featuring 138a King’s Road, where Mary Quant, her husband Alexander Plunkett Green and their partner Archie Nairn opened the world’s first boutique selling youth fashion in 1955, and 488, where Sheila Cohen, John Pearse and Nigel Waymouth ran Granny Takes A Trip from 1966.
The films will be available to view online and via mobile download. Budget depending we will be looking to expand the trail to other l;ocations in the King’s Road as well as to Kensington and Notting Hill.
