Quant by Quant: The Autobiography of Mary Quant
Quant by Quant: The Autobiography of Mary Quant, by Dame Mary Quant (paperback)
The autobiography of fashion icon Mary Quant was originally published in 1966 at the height of Swinging London. After opening her ground-breaking boutique Bazaar on London’s King’s Road in 1955, Quant soared to international fame with her brand of witty style that fitted perfectly with modern city life. At the forefront of fashion’s democratization, Quant was seeking to eliminate snobbery and “make fashionable clothes available to everyone.”
This joyful, evocative autobiography captures the world in which Quant found inspiration, and which she ultimately helped to define and change.
