-- Quant by Quant (1966)

What a great many people still don't realize is the Look isn't just the garments you wear. It's the way you put your make-up on, the way you do your hair, the sort of stockings you choose, the way you walk and stand; even the way you smoke your fag.
-- Quant by Quant (1966)

A fashionable wears clothes; the clothes don't wear her.
-- Quant by Quant (1966)

Fashion should be a game.
-- Quant by Quant (1966)

Having money is rather like being a blonde. It is more fun but not vital.
-- Quoted in: Observer (2 November 1986)
