He was a pioneer in commercial male fashion, in the 60s. “The £1 Million Mod” is credited as being the founder of London’s most famous shopping street. He opened his first shop there when it was just a shabby side road. But in true Moon opposite Jupiter style, it was attention grabbing. The outside of the shop was painted a striking canary yellow, it blared out pop music all day and employed hip young sales staff. Other designers and retailers followed Stephen’s example, opening fast-turnover, funky clothes shops in the same street. Swinging London was born and Carnaby Street became such a happening place that it was pedestrianised in 1973.
