Arriving in out inbox is the Quant trailer the first official feature documentary celebrating the incredible life-story of the trailblazing fashion designer Dame Mary Quant.
One of the most influential artists of the 20th Century worldwide, Mary Quant was at the vanguard of the style revolution of the 60s and 70s, leading the charge away from convention and conservatism through the championing of ground-breaking designs including the miniskirt and hot pants, plus an ingeniously creative partnership with hair stylist, Vidal Sassoon. Quant’s fresh designs and irreverent style shaped a generation and heralded the arrival of the ‘swinging sixties’. Her impact on the business of fashion and contemporary design can still be felt today across the globe.
“The fashionable woman wears clothes…the clothes don’t wear her.” Mary Quant
In her directorial debut, Sadie Frost pairs archive footage with dramatized scenes, featuring Camilla Rutherford as Quant with striking creativity. Original interviews with Quant family members and titans of the fashion and beauty industry provide a rich texture for exploring the creative, personal and professional life of a beloved cultural icon. The documentary features contributions from Kate Moss, Vivienne Westwood, Edward Enninful, Dave Davies, Charlotte Tilbury, Jasper Conran and Zandra Rhodes as well as Mary’s family and piers. She is now 91 and is a Fellow of the Chartered Society of Designers and winner of the Minerva Medal, the society’s highest award to add to her OBE and also a DBE – Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire.
