Studio Soho are thrilled to announce the Home Entertainment release of QUANT, a production from Goldfinch Entertainment – the first official feature documentary celebrating the life-story of the trailblazing fashion designer Dame Mary Quant. Available for digital download from 21st February and DVD & VOD on 28th February 2022, following its theatrical release on 29th October 2021.
One of the most influential artists of the 20th Century, 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. 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.
“The fashionable woman wears clothes…the clothes don’t wear her.” Mary Quant
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.
QUANT is directed by Sadie Frost (Dracula, Waiting for Anya, Two for Joy). The film is produced by Ben Charles Edwards (Set the Thames on Fire & Father of Flies) and Kirsty Bell (A Bird Flew In, Ronnies, Bombay Rose, Star Dust) and Executive Producer by Phil McKenzie of Goldfinch Entertainment.
