Mary Quant book
I visited the V&A museum to see the exhibition on Mary Quant and I was enlightened and educated to see how big an influence she was on the way we dress today. She was revolutionary and way ahead of her time. This is the book that accompanied the exhibition.
Dame Mary Quant was a fashion icon. The first focused study of her career, this book shows how she revolutionized fashion, harnessing youth, streetstyle and mass production to create a new look for everyone. It surveys the development of her business in the context of British, European and American fashion in the post-war period, and explores how her innovative marketing created a powerful global brand. Featuring new photography of Quant garments, alongside previously unpublished fashion photographs and designs, this book is a dynamic and authoritative account of the designer and her legacy.
