Daisy was released in the UK in 1973, with the tag line “Mary Quant makes Daisy the best dressed doll in the world”. Her name was a reference to Mary Quant’s logo, a daisy flower.
The dolls at the exhibition were wearing miniature versions of Mary Quants garment. Here are a few for you to feast your eyes on. Own photos from V and A.
Carrier Bags: The bags in the exhibition had some fabulous prints – bold, colourful and graphic.
Self-taught designer Nigel Quiney produced silk scarves that sold in London boutiques and department stores, as well as stationary made by his familys printing firm. Quant used some of his vibrant, psychedelia-inspired carrier bags for a window display at the Bazaar at 113 New Bond Street which was open 1967-1969. Own photos from the exhibition.
