Mary Quant has always had no doubts: “Fashion should be a game!”. Fashion should be provocative and entertaining, and mirror contemporary society. Her parents wished for her to become a teacher, but fate ̶and her rebellious soul ̶took her to fashion, and to open her first boutique in the vibrant atmosphere of Swinging London.
