    Background: MARY QUANT, THE YOUNG BRITISH DESIGNER WHOSE FASHIONS ARE ALL THE RAGE AT HOME AND IN THE UNITED STATES THESE DAYS, SHOWED A COLLECTION OF HER LATEST CREATIONS IN LONDON TODAY (MONDAY). CAMERAMEN FROM ABROAD AS WELL AS BRITAIN ELBOWED EACH OTHER IN THEIR EAGERNESS TO FILM MISS QUANT'S WORK - ALREADY FAMOUS AS HIGHLY "AVANT GARDE".

    MISS QUANT'S LATER FASHIONS SHOW SHE PREFERS BRIEFS TO THE BLOOMERS SAID TO BE GROWING IN POPULARITY AMONG FRENCH WOMEN. HER WAIST LINE WERE EITHER OPTIONAL OR NON-EXISTENT. THERE WAS HARDLY A PRINT DRESS IN THE COLLECTION, BUT ZIPPERS - USED FOR DECORATIVE AS WELL AS PRACTICAL PURPOSES - WERE EVERYWHERE IN EVIDENCE.

    LAST YEAR, MORE THAN 2,000,000 MARY QUANT FASHION "UNITS" - THE WORD SHE PREFERS TO "GARMENTS" - WERE SOLD OVERSEAS, MANY OF THEM IN THE UNITED STATES, FOR PRICES RANGING FROM GBP3 STERLING FOR SKIRTS TO GBP25 FOR SUITS. SHE'S ASSISTED IN MARKETING BY HER HUSBAND, MR. ALEXANDER PLUNKET GREENE, A RELATIVE OF THE DUKE OF BEDFORD."
    LAST NOVEMBER, MISS QUANT RECEIVED AN ORDER OF THE BRITISH EMPIRE (O.B.E.) FOR HER PART IN BOOSTING BRITISH EXPORTS. SHE ALSO INVENTED "MINI-KNICKERS" TO GO UNDER THE VERY SHORT MINI-SKIRTS NOW IN VOGUE. SHE SAYS SHE BECAME FED UP WITH SEEING WOMEN TUGGING AT THEIR MINI-SKIRT HEMLINES TRYING TO "LOOK DECENT".
