V&A Dundee’s 2020 exhibitions will explore the radiant world of fashion and nightclubs by celebrating the work of Mary Quant and five decades of eccentric club culture.
Dame Mary Quant, a truly iconic English fashion designer, became a leading figure behind the London-based Mod and fashions movements in the 60s.
The exhibition ‘Mary Quant’, currently on show at the V&A in London, explores Mary’s 60s fashion takeover when she reinvented a cutting-edge and empowered look for women.

Mary’s radical designs (from hot pants, to miniskirts, to trousers for women) revolutionised the 60s high street of fashion.
The V&A Dundee’s 2020 exhibit will explore an archive of Mary’s work, and feature an outstanding range of garments and fashion holdings.
4 April until 6 September
