Research and final outcomes for a project on the Mary Quant make up collection.
The brief asked to communicate a story or information about a collection of my choice, I found the Mary Quant collection in the University archives. Most of the cosmetics collection was from the 1960s, at the height of Quants popularity, I decided to celebrate this by designing a 50 year anniversary exhibition to showcase the collection.
The concept was to immerse the viewer in Mary Quants designs by having them travel through a scaled up make up bag, with large scale models of the cosmetics inside, I created illustrations of the collection to arrange on to posters and leaflets as part of the exhibition proposal.
I designed my research document to mimic a high fashion magazine as a reference to Quants contribution to the industry.
