Quant by Quant
Originally published in 1966, Quant by Quant is the hugely entertaining story of Mary Quant’s early career and life with husband and business partner Alexander Plunket Greene. After opening the groundbreaking Bazaar boutique on the King’s Road in 1955, Quant soared to international fame with her brand of witty fashion style which fitted perfectly with modern life about town. Just as her signature styles have become synonymous with the Pop culture of the Swinging Sixties, her joyful, evocative autobiography captures the world in which she found inspiration – and which she ultimately helped to define and change.
Mary Quant (b. 1934) studied at Goldsmiths’ College in London. Famed for popularizing the miniskirt, she was awarded an OBE in 1966.
