Mary Quant

Let's keep the 60's vibe going a wee bit longer with the fabulous Mary Quant.  Did she or did she not invent the minidress?  It could be her or Biba or one of the many other people that lay claim to it.   But either way she designed some amazing outfits along with my fav nail polish in those great round bottles. She also popularized hot pants.  Like Biba she started with a store in London, added makeup and shook the fashion world before all but disappearing from the general public.  These days her line is primarily sold in Japan.  There is a great book called Quant by Quant that is hard to find but definitely worth looking at.
