Mary Quant is a Welsh fashion designer and British fashion icon known for popularizing the miniskirt and hot pants. A major figure in the London-based Mod and youth fashion movements during the 1960s, she promoted fun fashions and encouraged people to dress to please themselves rather than conforming to societal norms. Popularly hailed as the inventor of the miniskirt, one of the defining fashions of the 1960s, Quant considered the shortening of the skirt a practical and liberating development for women. Born to Welsh teachers in 1934, she grew up during the World War II period. Too young to realize the seriousness of the war, she actually enjoyed the wartime activities as she was an adventurous young soul. Her progressive minded parents encouraged her to pursue a career and wanted her to choose a stable profession. Mary, however, had made up her mind to study illustration to which her parents reluctantly agreed. After completing her studies she started a business with Alexander Plunket Greene whom she later married. She promoted fun fashion wear which became immensely popular with the younger generation and within years she established herself as a British fashion icon. In addition she is also the author of the books ‘Quant by Quant’, ‘Colour by Quant’ and ‘Quant on Make-up.’
