After training in Fine Art at Goldsmith's College, Mary Quant opened her boutique Bazaar on London's King's Road in 1955. Quant promoted stylish yet affordable ready-to-wear fashions like this simple dress with contrasting collar and cuffs. Its simple material and construction are typical of Quant's youthful designs.
