Mary Quant started the Ginger Group line in 1963. In 1965, she was marketed in the US by Puritan manufacturing, as part of their Youthquake promotion. Later that same year, Quant’s designs were sold at Paraphernalia, the New York City boutique started by Puritan and, indeed throughout the world. Quant branched into cosmetics in 1966, and her line of cosmetics is still manufactured today.

Mary Quant was a major player in the youth movement of the early 1960s. By some accounts, she “invented” the mini skirt. By her own admission, she took the style from the girls on the street and popularized it. (Courtesy of the VFG)
