Regent Street. This was the first custom-designed shopping mall in the history of the world, and 2019 has been its 200th anniversary. It was an enormously prestigious architectural project. The unique curvature of the buildings and street was forced on the designers when certain land, necessary for a straight street, could not be procured and the planned street was re-routed as we see it today. As an inveterate shopper and people watcher, I am entranced by this street and always intrigued by what or who I might find around the curve. Here, I have assembled tableaux of the throng, a Street Party in honour of shops, shopping, and shoppers. It is a place dedicated to satisfying one of the deepest loves known to humankind, which is how to dress… I mean shop… I mean dress… I mean shop!
