Not many names epitomise an era, but Mary Quant is such a name. Her life, her ideas, her style touched (and still touch) everyone. Mary Quant is fashion. Most people connect Mary with one thing – the mini skirt – that ground-breaking design that is as potent now as it was when it first appeared in the early sixties. But her influence carried way beyond those early frenetic black-and-white years. Now, towards the close of what has been one of the most influential and visionary careers in fashion’s history, Mary Quant has written a memoir in her own inimitable style – a witty, unique account of her whirlwind life. It is a story like no other. But then there is only one Mary Quant.
