Dame Mary Quant dies aged 93

Dame Mary Quant.webp


Model Twiggy Lawson has led the tributes to designer Dame Mary Quant, who has died aged 93.

The fashion legend passed away "peacefully at home in Surrey", her family announced on Thursday.

Dame Mary was credited with popularising the miniskirts that helped define the Swinging '60s.

Twiggy, who became a style icon during the era, said Dame Mary had "such an influence on young girls in the late 50s early 60s".

"She revolutionised fashion and was a brilliant female entrepreneur," she wrote in a social media post. "The 1960s would have never been the same without her."

Former Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman called Dame Mary a "leader of fashion but also in female entrepreneurship", adding she was "a visionary who was much more than a great haircut."

The lady that defined an era? Probably.

RiP Mary, there will never be another

Very sad news Mary was an innovator in the fashion world. Loved them mini skirts, seen many nice cheeks when going upstairs on the bus in my youth.
