Mary Quant @ Gallery of Costume

10 June 2017 - 5 November 2017

Celebrated as the most famous female fashion designer working in London in the 1960s, Mary Quant dressed an international clientele of the young and hip, creating her famous Chelsea look.
Quant’s designs exemplified a shift in fashion’s focus and inspiration to a younger consumer and was typified by simply-styled tunics, short pleated skirts and bold mini dresses. Quant’s fashion was particularly associated with the model, Twiggy, and was popularised in the fashion press throughout the 1960s and 1970s.
