Vidal Sassoon"If it weren't for Felicity and our gingham frock, my life would have been quite different." Barbara Hulanicki"I plunged in to the London '60s scene and broke all the rules - for me fashion is not frivolous, it's part of being alive. Felicity at the Daily Mirror understood this - and understood me." Mary Quant"Felicity was the journalist who first put '60s fashions in newspapers. She recognised our scene and its potential to influence and change fashion and she put us all together, the models, the photographers with the clothes and hairstyles we all wanted to wear - and Felicity made it news."
