“The whole point of fashion is to make fashionable clothes available to everyone.”Mary Quant
Mary Quant was a trendsetter in more ways than I’d realised. As we moved from display case to display case, it became clear that many of her contemporaries and the designers who came later used her ideas as their starting point. I’m talking to you, Laura Ashley and Johnnie Boden.
“a riot of rebellion, vigour and youthful energetic fashion…”Tatler magazine
While the exhibition is in a much smaller space than the Dior, there is still plenty of visual loveliness to occupy the visitor for an hour or more.
The Mary Quant exhibition runs until February 2020.
