Originally published in 1966, Quant by Quant is the hugely entertaining story of fashion designer Mary Quant’s early career and life with her husband and business partner, Alexander Plunket Greene. After opening the groundbreaking Bazaar boutique on London’s King’s Road in 1955, Quant soared to international fame with her brand of witty style that fitted perfectly with modern life. Just as her signature styles have become synonymous with the pop culture of the Swinging Sixties, her joyful, evocative autobiography captures the world in which she found inspiration—and which she ultimately helped to define and change.
