In her directorial debut, Sadie Frost pairs archive footage with dramatized scenes (featuring Camilla Rutherford as Quant) with striking creativity.
One of the most influential artists of the 20th Century worldwide, Mary Quant was at the vanguard of the style revolution of the 60s and 70s, leading the charge away from convention and conservatism through the championing of ground-breaking designs including the miniskirt and hot pants, plus an ingeniously creative partnership with hair stylist, Vidal Sassoon.
Quant’s fresh designs and irreverent style shaped a generation and heralded the arrival of the ‘swinging sixties’. Her impact on the business of fashion and contemporary design can still be felt today across the globe.
