Synopsis

Not many names epitomise an era, but Mary Quant is such a name. Her life, her ideas, her style touched (and still touch) everyone. Mary Quant is fashion. Most people connect Mary with one thing - the mini skirt - that ground-breaking design that is as potent now as it was when it first appeared in the early sixties. But her influence carried way beyond those early frenetic black-and-white years. Now, towards the close of what has been one of the most influential and visionary careers in fashion's history, Mary Quant has written a memoir in her own inimitable style - a witty, unique account of her whirlwind life. It is a story like no other. But then there is only one Mary Quant.

Mary Quant was born in London in 1934. She trained at Goldsmiths' School of Art where she met her husband Alexander Plunket Greene. They married in 1957. Together with Archie McNair they opened their first shop, Bazaar, in the King's Road: the start of a dazzling career that changed the face of fashion and make-up. Mary has received countless awards and honours, including an OBE in 1966. Three years layer she was made a Fellow of the Society of Industrial Artists and she was also named Royal Designer for Industry. Mary lives in Surrey and has a son, Orlando, and three grandchildren.
