Mary Quant, the queen of swinging London

Today marks the 80th birthday of Mary Quant, the lady who put swing into the 1960s London.   She took credit for the creation of mini skirt and hotpants. She was also an instrumental figure in the mod fashion movements.

Known for her bob haircut almost as much as for her designs, she revolutionised women’s fashion in 1960s.
