Studio Soho has debuted the trailer for Sadie Frost’s directorial debut ‘Quant’, a documentary celebrating the incredible life story of the trailblazing fashion designer Dame Mary Quant.
One of the most influential artists of the 20th Century worldwide, Mary Quant was at the vanguard of the style revolution of the ’60s and ’70s, leading the charge away from convention and conservatism through the championing of ground-breaking designs including the miniskirt and hot pants, plus an ingeniously creative partnership with the hairstylist, Vidal Sassoon. Quant’s fresh designs and irreverent style shaped a generation and heralded the arrival of the ‘swinging sixties’. Her impact on the business of fashion and contemporary design can still be felt today across the globe.
In her directorial debut, Sadie Frost pairs archive footage with dramatized scenes, featuring Camilla Rutherford as Quant with striking creativity. Original interviews with Quant family members and titans of the fashion and beauty industry provide a rich texture for exploring the creative, personal and professional life of a beloved cultural icon.
The doc hits UK Cinemas on October 29th.
