Mary Quant and ’60s fashion

Fashion designer Mary Quant was part of the ‘swinging sixties’ cultural shake-up in the UK. She pioneered the wearing of mini skirts, hot pants, coloured tights, PVC, skinny-rib jumpers and ‘bob’ haircuts in a freer, more relaxed and fun style of fashion.

The Victoria & Albert Museum will be holding a Mary Quant exhibition starting in April 2019.
