Quant, Mary

Quant, Mary, 1934-, British fashion designer. After opening her boutique in London to sell clothes, she began to design them as well. She was one of the originators of the "mod" or "Chelsea" look of the 1960s that helped make London the new center of fashion. Her designs included miniskirts; vinyl boots; dresses with striking geometric patterns and strong colors; and the "wet" look achieved by tightly fitted vinyl clothing for a young and avant-garde clientele.

See her Quant on Quant (1966).
