The fluid cut, pliable jersey fabric and functional front zip of this 'skater' dress suggest the speed and grace of the ice-rink. Mary Quant designed informal, functional clothes for the emancipated woman. She said, 'I want free-flowing, feminine lines that compliment a woman's shape... relaxed clothes, suited to the actions of normal life'.
