Mary Quant: Fashion Revolutionary provides an unrivalled insight into the career of one of Britain’s most revolutionary and important fashion designers.
From miniskirts and hot pants to vibrant tights and makeup, this exhibition explores how Mary Quant launched a fashion revolution on the British high street. Quant personified the energy and fun of swinging London and was a powerful role model for the working woman. Challenging conventions, she popularised the miniskirt, colourful tights and tailored trousers – encouraging a new age of feminism.
Exhibition now on until 11th July at Bendigo Art Gallery.
