Fashion icon Mary Quant celebrated through archive-led films and personal interviews.

Mary Quant

This major V&A retrospective showed how Mary Quant launched a fashion revolution on the UK high street.

NewAngle developed eight films exploring youth culture of the late 1950s and 1960s, Quant’s design process, marketing techniques, theories on fashion, and the impact of her clothes. These included rarely seen archive footage and stills.

We also filmed interviews with four women who knew or worked with Quant in the 1960s, giving their personal perspectives of her.

A large circular structure in the centre of the mezzanine displays projected photographs and quotes sent in by the public telling their personal stories of wearing Quant’s clothes.
