Mary Quant: Fashion Revolutionary

Exhibition and Shows

20 Mar 2021 to 11 Jul 2021 Once Only Event

In March 2021, Bendigo Art Gallery will present Mary Quant: Fashion Revolutionary, a retrospective exhibition on the iconic British fashion designer Dame Mary Quant.

Bendigo is the exclusive Australian venue for this exhibition from the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. The exhibition explores the years between 1955 and 1975, when Mary Quant revolutionised the high street, harnessing the youthful spirit of the sixties and new mass production techniques to create a new look for women. Drawing on the V&A’s extensive fashion holdings, Dame Mary Quant’s Archive and private collections, the exhibition brings together over 110 garments as well as accessories, cosmetics, sketches, photographs and even Quant’s own line of fashion dolls, known as Daisy dolls, a rival to Barbie.

Quant personified the energy and fun of swinging London and was a powerful role model for the working woman. Challenging conventions, she popularised the miniskirt, colourful tights and tailored trousers – encouraging a new age of feminism.

Mary Quant: Fashion Revolutionary provides an unrivalled insight into the career of one of Britain’s most revolutionary and important fashion designers.

An exhibition organised by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
