The V&A says: 'This will be the first international retrospective on Quant in nearly 50 years, revealing the true stories behind the ‘swinging sixties’ scene, and exploring how Quant democratised fashion, blazing a trail on the British high-street with her unique personal style.'
Yesterday the V&A staged a “Quant revival” outside the museum to let the world know about the launch of ticket sales for its retrospective of Mary Quant. The event had models and staff who worked with Mary Quant in the 1960s and 1970s and many of them were wearing her original designs.
The exhibition, which runs from 6th April 2019, will have more than 120 pieces of clothing plus make-up, drawings, tights, underwear and photographs that belong to Mary Quant. Many of them have never been on public display before.
