London is a fashionable city and you only need to go out to the streets to see it for yourself. The British capital is beloved for its fashionable streets—specific spots that have contributed to the city's legacy in fashion. Some of them have even made a considerable impact in fashion history, influencing the world at large. Carnaby Street is one of them, widely regarded as the birthplace of the 'Mod' style. Saville Row, on the other hand, champions London's famous traditional tailoring. And then there's Oxford Street, home to some of the best-known luxury shops in the city.

Carnaby Street

No London has arguably had as much influence over the city's fashion industry than Carnaby Street. In the 1960s, around the time that The Beatles were taking over the world, Carnaby Street was changing the way people dressed back home. This is where “Mod” was born, a new kind of style that traded in traditional tailoring for mini-skirts, bright colors, and freeform silhouettes. Carnaby Street was and is where small-time designers revolutionized fashion, opting for more youthful aesthetics instead of old-world elegance. Today, the area remains home to some of the best designer boutiques and coolest vintage shops in London.

Savile Row

On the opposite side of the spectrum—and geographically, the city—there's Savile Row. Located in the upscale Mayfair neighborhood in London, this is the best place to get a suit. London's finest tailors line this famous street, all upholding the city's longtime tradition of producing high-quality garments. The rich and famous get their suits here, even the British Royal Family. Here, excellent traditional tailoring reigns supreme, with both new and old shops making use of centuries-old techniques passed down from one generation to the next. Not reliant on trends, you can always expect expertly-cut suits and other clothes here!

Bow Lane

At first glance, Bow Lane is far from the kind of fashionable street you'll want to frequent. You'd sooner want to rent a London luxury apartment far from this place so you won't have to go here at all. No one could blame you though! Bow Lane looks is a narrow alley-like street that almost looks and feels like the kind of place you'd expect Jack The Ripper to get you. But don't worry! There are no infamous serial killers here. Bow Lane is a safe and lively street lined with cool shops, great places to eat, and a whole lot of fun.
