Mary Quant Quotes

1. Fashion is a tool...to compete in life outside the home. People like you better, without knowing why, because people always react well to a person they like the looks of.


2. A woman is as young as her knees.



3. Having money is rather like being a blond. It is more fun but not vital.

4. Fashion is not frivolous. It is a part of being alive today.

5. The fashionable woman wears clothes. The clothes don't wear her.


6. Good taste is death. Vulgarity is life.





7. Risk it, go for it. Life always gives you another chance, another go at it. It's very important to take enormous risks.

8. One of the things I've learned is never to horde ideas, because either they are not so relevant or they've gone stale. Whatever it is, pour it out.


9. Fashion, as we knew it, is over; people wear now exactly what they feel like wearing.






10. A "look" can so easily be weak and diluted and disintegrated when garments have to be made in all sizes and for all types. I have seen it slaughtered in mass production. (on "Quant by Quant" - 1966)


11. What a great many people still don't realize is the Look isn't just the garments you wear. It's the way you put your make-up on, the way you do your hair, the sort of stockings you choose, the way you walk and stand; even the way you smoke your fag. (on "Quant by Quant" - 1966)
