Mary Quant 60s Dress Hire
Mary Quant mini dress costume hire is here in all it’s Kings Road glory at Express Yourself Costume Hire near Southampton. We have a whole department of retro 50s, 60s and 70s outfits for hire. Come and explore our very own Carnaby Street for your cool sixties look.
In 1955, at a time when ‘fashion wasn’t designed for young people’, Quant opened Bazaar, a boutique on the King’s Road. She devised eye-catching window displays to attract customers. Her clothes were made up of simple shapes and cuts combined with strong colours like scarlet, prune and green and famously just black and white. Prices were low compared to those charged for haute couture.
By 1963 the clothes were such a success that Quant opened a second branch of the shop in Knightsbridge.
Famed for popularising, if not inventing, the mini skirt, in 1966 Quant was awarded the OBE. In the early 1960s her designs were bought by the chain store J C Penney to be mass produced for the American market.
You know the story and the look and now you know where to find it today….
