Mary Quant at the V&A part 2.

Mary Quant at the V&A part 2.
.
The thing that really stood out to me was how different the fabrics were that we wore then to now.
Much more rigid and flexible and quite bulky.
.
These video clips include:
The Daisy dress up doll ( I remember I had one of the cut out and paste books of these as a child.)!
1960s sportswear Quant style 
The mini Quant wore to collect her OBE
The jersey dress ( the first time stretchy jersey had been used as a clothing fabric) 
The Quant collection of everything from tights to sunglasses to makeup
The cape 
Dresses with matching frilly pants
The journey of the mini from knee to very short.

Tbt To outside the Jean Machine on London’s Kings road circa 1970

Tbt 
To outside the Jean Machine on London's Kings road circa 1970.
.
Note the 70s fashions of: 
Big collar
Patchwork denim shirt
Denim on denim
Cowboy belt
Chunky silver bracelet
Bellbottom jeans
Platform boots .
And... what was I thinking about? ( my facial expression is a picture in itself)! Or ...
What was I waiting for? 
Think I was working there as my out of school Saturday job at the time.
Your thoughts? .
