Makes you look and feel great no matter what clothes you wear
It was Mary Quant who pioneered style in London, despite there being disputes as to who hitched the hemline north. Gowns and super short skirts became her signature appearance, helping to popularize the miniskirt on an global scale. Origins began with opening her notorious shop, Bazaar, on Kings Road in 1955, where her shapes and strong colours contested the values prevailing. The 50s was recognized as a age where’style was not for young people’, but Quant was a visionary, and locals were offered alternative, bespoke clothing that were a far cry from that which had been available on the mainstream market by her designs. Famous for being the mommy of the mini skirt, her love of brief silhouettes can be pinpointed when spying during a Chelsea ballet class.
