ABOUT THE MARY QUANT BRAND

Freedom & individuality

Forget all the rules. Follow your heart and express who you are.

Mary Quant gave rise to the "swinging London" cultural movement, where she popularised the miniskirt which was scandalous at the time.
Brimming with curiosity and individuality, she had an incredible influence on the improvement of the modern woman's position in society. Using fashion and makeup, you can enjoy whatever style you want. With MARY QUANT, you can express who you want to be, and shine brighter than ever before.

"Be free. Be yourself."
Through our products, we aim to share Mary Quant's ethos with the world.

ABOUT Mary Quant

The centre of 1960s fashion:
Chelsea, London

Mary Quant, her late husband Alexander Plunket Greene and friend Archie McNair opened the London boutique Bazaar in 1955. By the early 1960s, the clothes created from Mary's colourful imagination had captured the hearts of many young people and celebrities.

The launch of the miniskirt:
Mary's contribution to women's liberation

Mary's fashion was free from the constraints of old rules, which drove British street culture to transform into something that was enjoyable for everyone. The miniskirt changed the world when it launched in the 1950s, and it has since become a symbol of women's liberation.

Makeup being as a part of fashion:
From ideas to sales

In 1966, Mary recognised the need to create a new style of makeup to go with the new style of fashion. This development made waves throughout the world, and gained particular popularity in Japan. This level of popularity has not changed since, and MARY QUANT products are continuing to be manufactured and sold in Japan.

The foundation of a brand:
Great influence from Japan

Mary made the first of many happy visits to Japan in 1972, where she developed a deep and lasting interest in the country. She greatly appreciated Japanese beauty and kindness, as well as Japan's delicious delicacies, which lead to Japanese influences appearing in her designs.

Our brand's symbol: The Black Daisy

The daisy that has become our brand's icon was born from the doodles of a young Mary Quant. She would draw the daisy whilst making her sketches in order to let her ideas flow. Compared to any other motif, this simple design perfectly fit her. Something that could not be created by science, something truly unique in the world. From then on, it not only became an emblem of the freedom that Mary promulgated, along with her desire to break societal norms and show individuality, but also the emblem of our brand.
