Additional information

For my talks, I carry an extensive range/collection of Mary Quant clothes and memorabilia for 'real-feel' interest and demonstration to my audience. My mini-car has won numerous trophies and been featured in TV programmes several times - I've been interviewed on radio too. Certainly, I'm passionate about my subject - Mary Quant and her wonderful designs - and this comes across well - such that feedback is positive and repeat bookings regularly follow.

Content and audience interest is such that I now give two 'separate' talks on the subject, covering different times in the life and career of Mary Quant. There is also a third talk on the 1960s generally in London when the fashion explosion really took off. This talk covers the Boutiques and Designer of the 1960s/1970s. Again I carry clothes and memorabilia of various designers.
