Mary Quant - English Fashion Designer

After attending the Goldsmiths College of Art in London, Mary Quant opened her first boutique in the Kings Road in 1955.  She is still a British fashion icon, who is credited with designing the mini skirt and hot-pants.  Imagine finding one of these outfits in a vintage shop today. She also launched a range of cosmetics  marked with a daisy, which were very popular in Australia in the 60's.  See her latest designs at
