Cheung Sha Wan Road is a major thoroughfare in central Kowloon between Yen Chow Street and Wong Chuk Street. It is also known as 'Fashion Street' as there are many commercial establishments in the area selling wholesale apparel, fashion accessories and fabrics.
Although many of the fashion stores are devoted to wholesale, most of them also sell retail as well. The styles are rich and colorful which mostly come from the numerous factory around the area.
Many renowned fashion designers, both local and from different parts of the world, source the fabrics and other materials for their creations from Cheung Sha Wan Road.
Most stores in Cheung Sha Wan Road Fashion Street are usually open only during regular business hours (9:00am to 6:00pm) Monday to Friday and mornings only on Saturdays. Most shops are closed on Sundays, making the trip there not worth it during this day.
The shops are very accessible being near the railway station. The street can also be reached by taxi from anywhere in the city. To get to Cheung Sha Wan Road Fashion Street, take MTR to Shum Shui Po Station and take Exit C1.
