Mary Quant defined the 60s as a renowned fashion designer and all-round style icon, most famous for inventing the miniskirt and hot pants. Not afraid of novelty or experimentation, she showed a generation of women how to dress to please themselves. Quant's career was fulsome and varied - from opening up a clothes shop on the King's Road called Bazaar, designing the interior of the Mini (including her signature daisy), to her vast cosmetics company, Mary Quant Limited, she has widespread appeal to generations of women. In her autobiography, Mary combines the inspirational story of a stellar career with the touching personal story of her life with the man she loved, Alexander Plunkett-Green and her role of mother to their son, Orlando. Mary Quant gives us a glimpse of the real women behind the icon.
