The major retrospective of the late Dame Mary Quant, one of Britain’s most revered and celebrated fashion designers, is set to reach Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum – the final chance to see this touring exhibition, which features over 100 garments, accessories, cosmetics and photographs drawn from tour organiser the V&A’s extensive collections, Mary Quant’s archive and many private collections following a public appeal. 

Focusing on the years from 1955, when Quant opened her experimental boutique Bazaar on the King’s Road, Chelsea, through the ‘Swinging Sixties’, when she was awarded her OBE, and up to 1975, it showcases the period when Quant revolutionised the High Street with her subversive and playful designs for a younger generation.
