Update: 7th June 2018—the V&A have announced a forthcoming Mary Quant Retrospective Exhibition, opening 6th April 2019 until 8th March 2020. The exhibition will bring together over 200 objects, drawn from the V&A’s extensive fashion holdings, which includes the largest collection of Mary Quant garments in the world, as well as the designer’s personal archive and important international loans, the majority of which have never been on public display. To help the V&A bring the exhibition further to life, the museum is also launching a #WeWantQuant public call-out to track down rare Mary Quant garments and gather personal stories.
