Biography

British clothing retailer, dubbed by the media "The £1m Mod" and "The King Of Carnaby Street."

One of the most important fashion figures of the 1960s, Stephen was the first individual to identify and sell to the young menswear mass market which emerged in the late '50s and early '60s. He was also the pioneer of the high turnover, disposable fashion ethos of such contemporary operators as Topman.

By 1967, Stephen operated a chain of 15 shops on the thoroughfare in central London which he and boyfriend Bill Franks made the epicentre of Swinging London: Carnaby Street.

He died on 1 February 2004.
