Mary Quant: Fashion Revolutionary
2022.05.28-2022.08.28
Mary Quant: Fashion Revolutionary, a world tour of the fashion designer’s retrospective organized by the Victoria & Albert Museum (V&A) in London, revisits the professional career of the iconic British fashion designer, Mary Quant, and showcases her representative designs from 1955 to 1975. From the experimental clothing store “Bazaar” to her namesake brand “Mary Quant,” which took the world by storm with its instantly recognizable Daisy logo. Her youthful, cheeky designs challenged the leading status of Paris as the center of haute couture, and shaped Britain’s visionary, innovative image after the war. As the ambassador of her own design, and benefited from the explosive growth of consumption and media at the time, Mary Quant was able to transform her designs of miniskirt, stockings, pinafore dress into unstoppable trends, which in turn made her the creative leader and role model of professional women worldwide. This retrospective includes more than 120 pieces of authentic clothes, fashion dolls, cosmetics, photographs, and fashion magazines to present comprehensively how Mary Quant created and defined the fashion styles of several generations to come.
