Shoe of the Month – Mary Quant Fashion Boots

Groovy

In the 1960s swinging London became the capital of the fashion world.

Famous as being inventor of the mini skirt, Mary Quant was one of the first designers to aim fashion at the hip and happening trendsetting girls on the street.

Quant’s Chelsea boutique Bazaar opened in 1955 where in the early 1960s she launched her London look of slim line shift dresses with rising hemlines that showed plenty of leg.

‘Legs never had it so good’, boasted the British press.

As hemlines rose, the increase in expanse of leg drew attention to the feet. Quant brought out her Quant a Foot range of fashion boots in bright coloured plastics. These are from the early 1960s.
