[light soiling to top edge of text block, no other significant wear, one-time owner's ink signature at top of ffep; jacket a bit edgeworn, with remnants of an old (mostly removed) label on the front panel]. (B&W photographs) Memoir by the noted fashion designer, who opened a shop called "Bazaar" in London's King's Road in 1955 and, "unable to find the kind of clothes that she wanted for her shop, she started making them herself." She soon found herself in the vanguard of a revitalized British fashion industry, and by the early 1960s was already one of its top designers, and well on the way to becoming a fashion icon on a par with Chanel and Dior. Although claims once made for her as the inventor of the miniskirt have largely been discounted (including by Quant herself), she did give it its name, after her favorite make of automobile. She was appointed OBE at the age of 32, the same year this book was published in America; much later she wrote a second autobiography, published in 2011.
