Mary Quant: Miniskirt Maker (First in Fashion) - Booklist

Readers may not realize that the bright, energetic fashions of today’s youth exist in large part because of British fashion designer Mary Quant. Using period photos, this book provides historical and cultural context for Quant’s story. . . . While the text acknowledges that there’s contention regarding the iconic skirt’s original designer, all agree that Quant was responsible for making it a sensation. Tracing her wildly successful career from art school to brand name, this entry in the First in Fashion series offers an illuminating look at a fearless fashionista.
