camden fashion >> gothic fashion
This is one of the best known shops in Camden and was the
first to stock alternative, underground and gothic styles
in Camden High Street - starting a trend that has now taken
over much of the street. Darkside now offers a timeless range
of gothic clothes and cyber-goth wear and is the biggest stockist
of brands like ‘Raven’ and ‘S.D.L’.
But it is also the only stockist of Underground shoes. The
Underground brand has been a favourite with bands through
the pop-punk-rock eras and will probably never go out of fashion.

NW1. Tel: 020 7284 2174.Opening times: Monday - Friday 10.00-6.30.

gothic clothing and the prices are quite reasonable. Pink

of the rest
Camden High Street is teeming with shops
selling Goth clothing and accessories - look out for bargains
but also beware of cheaply made, over-priced tat, of which
there is quite a bit.
When you've shopped till you drop, take
a load off at The Devonshire Arms, The Dev to its fans.
It is London's leading Goth pub and can be found on the
corner of Kentish Town Road and Hawley Crescent.
