The first official feature documentary celebrating the incredible life of one of the most influential icons of the 20th Century, fashion designer Dame Mary Quant. 

Director Sadie Frost crafts a fizzy, upbeat ode to the now 92-year-old Quant, exploring her importance as a female business pioneer, her influence on gender politics through women’s dress and her impact on a decade of fashion.

Drawing on an exceptional pop cultural archive and including a glittering array of contributors, from Edward Enninful to Kate Moss, Vivienne Westwood and Dave Davies, the film explores Quant’s significant legacy and the ways in which her work signposted the future; asking questions about fast fashion and mass production, and her contribution to pop culture’s obsession with marketing people as brands.
