Style Muse: Mary Quant

I recently read Quant by Quant, The Autobiography of Mary Quant. If you haven't read it then I urge you to do so as it is such an inspiring read. Mary Quant is perhaps best remembered for popularising the mini skirt and this book, originally published in 1966, tells the story of her early career and life with Alexander Plunket Greene, her husband and business partner. After opening her boutique Bazaar on the Kings Road in 1955, Mary Quant soared to fame with her stylish clothes and much like in the early days of Biba the shop would regularly run out of stock when it first opened. The book is highly entertaining and I just love finding out about the mad life they all lead in the early years of setting up the shop.
