This is the first international retrospective on the iconic fashion designer Mary Quant.

The show explores the years between 1955 and 1975 when Quant captured the spirit of the 1960s and utilised mass production techniques to create a new look for women.

By challenging conventions, Quant encouraged a new age of feminism and revolutionised the high street with her playful designs, from hot pants, miniskirts and trousers for women to accessories, tights and make-up.

Co-curated by Jenny Lister and Stephanie Wood, the show draws on V&A South Kensington's extensive fashion holdings and features an extraordinary range of garments tracked down following a public call-out.
