QUANT is cinematic and stylistic. This is the fascinating story of the iconic design and retail pioneer, from her very first store on London’s legendary King’s Road, through to the development of a global empire.

Using archive footage, original interviews with Quant’s contemporaries, family and modern day fashion and style leaders, plus dramatized scenes, Quant will be a feature of striking originality that is incredibly ‘of the moment’, revealing Mary’s quest to take on the world of fashion, push boundaries and pave the way for generations of women for decades after.

Evening Standard, “Frost tells the story of Quant’s fashion journey as part of an era of profound social change for women, delving into cornerstones of 1960s social history such as the Women’s Liberation Movement and the introduction of the contraceptive pill. She illustrates how Quant’s innovative designs, from the miniskirt to the hotpants, helped women express their newfound independence and sexual liberation.

This marriage of clothes and culture and Quant’s impact on both is most notably seen through the biggest phenomenon of the 1960s – The British Invasion. Soundtracked by the likes of The Who and The Kinks to name a few, Frost takes us on a journey through the era’s global expansion of British culture, spearheaded by but not limited to The Beatles’ crossing of the Atlantic. As the film notes, “If the Beatles provided the soundtrack, Mary provided the visuals”. Frost wants to make it clear that Quant was one of the masterminds behind the global domination of the mod and youth fashion of London’s Kings Road.”
