Using the work of Barbara Brown as a starting point, Manchester Modernist discuss King Street - Retail, Fashion and Manchester Culture in One Street. A journey through Manchester's post war fashion and cultural scene using King Street as a spine to a story that involves characters such as Ozzie Clark, Celia Birtwell, David Mellor, Terence Conran, Vidal Sassoon and George Best (amongst others). This will be a story of Manchester's ever changing retail fortunes and its constantly vibrant cultural scene.
