Mary Quant (pictured right), the British designer who revolutionised fashion with the mini-skirt in the early 1960s, has joined retail group House of Fraser as a non-executive director.

A company spokesman said Ms Quant's experience of the fashion and retail business would benefit House of Fraser, which sells clothing and cosmetics through its chain of Dickins & Jones, Army & Navy and DH Evans stores.

Ms Quant opened her first shop, Bazaar, in King's Road, Chelsea, in the early 1960s, followed by the launch in 1967 of the Mary Quant cosmetics range.
