Quant is directed by Sadie Frost (Producer of Set The Thames on Fire, Sky Captain & The World Of Tomorrow and acting credits including Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Love, Honour & Obey) in her directorial debut. The film is creative produced by Ben Charles Edwards (Set The Thames on Fire, Father of Flies) and Kirsty Bell of Goldfinch Entertainment.

One of Britain’s most renowned cultural figures, Quant was at the vanguard of the stylistic 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, plus an ingeniously creative partnership with hair stylist, Vidal Sassoon.

Quant’s mould-breaking designs and irreverent style were widely credited as being critical to the development of the ‘swinging sixties’. Quant tells the full story of this design and retail pioneer, from her first store on the legendary King’s Road in London, where the days’ sales paid for cloth that could be made up overnight into new stock for the following day, through to the development of a global empire incorporating fashion, homeware and cosmetics.

Using original interviews with Quant’s contemporaries (Kate Moss, Vivienne Westwood, Edward Enninful), Quant family and modern day fashion and style leaders, plus dramatized scenes enacting some of Quant’s most famous statements, and archive footage, Quant features striking creativity within its storytelling and imagery.
