I think most of us who are interested in fashion are intrigued by the homes of designers- wondering how they really live and if their surroundings reflect the clothes that they create. I know that I was a little surprised to find these photos of Mary Quant's flat, which are from 1964. While I've never considered her the most original designer, this apartment is very classic and seems to lack some of the bohemian flavour that I would have been sure Alexander Plunkett Green would have required. Anyway, aren't the original captions quite hilarious? Rather amusing to think that there exists a job where you must spend your time finding the least interesting way to describe something...

Regarding Mary Quant, I will be giving a talk on her at a symposium on May 7th- if you are in New York and love fashion history you should definitely come. Information on the symposium, as well as the abstract of my talk, can be found here.
