    Fashion designer Dame Mary Quant opened her first Bazaar boutique on King's Road in Chelsea, London, in 1955. She married her work partner, the fashion entrepreneur Alexander Plunket Greene, in 1957. Quant became known for her bold, geometric designs and for popularising the miniskirt, which became synonymous with the 'Swinging Sixties' in London. Photographer John Adriaan's image for the Daily Mirror – featuring models Vicky Hodge, Peggy Moffitt, Linda Carlens, Jenny Fassell, Karina, Renate, Jill Wight, Lorraine Chase and Sarah Dawson – celebrates the imminent worldwide launch of Quant's cosmetics line, which joined her vastly successful underwear and outerwear ranges. All Quant products were branded with the classic daisy logo.
