Further to the continued success of its Dior exhibition, the V&A is now showcasing another legendary name in fashion; English designer Mary Quant. The exhibition boasts over 200 of Quant’s garments and accessories, exploring her work over the years from 1955 to 1975, as well as some of her most notable achievements and moments. Quant is synonymous with the swinging 60s and revolutionised fashion for the everyday working woman. It is thanks to Quant that items such as the mini skirt and tailored trousers became staples of the English woman’s wardrobe, and as Quant challenged convention she saw the birth of a new age of feminism.
With the Dior exhibition coming to an end in September, and tickets increasingly hard to get your hands on, the Mary Quant exhibition offers an excellent alternative for those looking to explore a fashion legacy.
