The family called her “one of the most internationally recognised fashion designers of the 20th Century and an outstanding innovator of the Swinging Sixties.”
Quant helped popularise the miniskirt — some credit her with inventing it — and the innovative tights that went along with it, creating dresses and accessories that were an integral part of the look.
