‘I still weave dreams, finding inspiration wherever I can and looking for romance in the real, not the digital, world’ Grace Coddington

Mary Quant made getting dressed fun. The British fashion designer shook up the industry in the 1960s with her savvily marketed, mass-produced clothes that women could actually move in. It became very popular very fast, Mary Quant made a ‘Chelsea Girl’ – lithe, leggy and a little bit unconventional – fashionable. Celebrities loved her. The models Jean Shrimpton, Twiggy and Grace Coddington all wore her designs, and Quant made coats for George Harrison and Pattie Boyd when they got married in 1966.

Eric Swayne was surrounded by a troop of revolutionary artists, musicians, photographers and models; many of whom were Swayne's friends. Between them they would all play their part in London's 60s creative explosion, and their cultural impact is still felt today. This is a unique and intimate record of that special time, taken from the inside.
