Synopsis

After opening her boutique Bazaar on London’s King’s Road in 1955, Quant soared to international fame with her brand of witty style that fitted perfectly with modern city life. She was at the forefront of fashion’s democratization, seeking to eliminate snobbery and “make fashionable clothes available to everyone.” Her autobiography captures the world in which she found inspiration, and which she ultimately helped to define and change.
