Quant was an embodiment of the energy and freedom of the time. The exhibit at the V & A is a must-see. Little did I know how much inspiration my closet draws from the trailblazing designs of Mary Quant’s collections.
Some of my subjects could barely understand me, some had interesting stories to tell, but they all had one thing in common. The clothes they wore were selected intentionally. Their desire was consistent whether it was the classic feminine flare of London or the utilitarian chic style of Paris.
