Members' exclusive: from miniskirts and hot pants to vibrant tights and makeup, discover how Mary Quant launched a fashion revolution on the British high street, with more than 200 garments and accessories, including unseen pieces from the designer's personal archive.

Just under 60 years since Mary Quant's designs burst onto the 1960s scene and shook up the fashion world as that fabled decade seriously started to swing, her incredible creative genius is here in all its rich and exciting vibrancy for our lucky ballot winners to savour at this special private viewing.

The Quant name remains an iconic brand to this day, and its enduring global influence has prompted London’s V&A Museum to launch this major retrospective exhibition celebrating the designer's achievements. 

The exhibition opens in April and will run for ten months. At its centrepiece will be an extensive collection of Quant-designed garments, as well as photos, sketches and cosmetics, many of which have never been publicly displayed before.

Twenty Possibilities members will each win a pair of tickets (40 attendees overall) for your own exclusive viewing of the Mary Quant exhibition, including a talk from a V&A expert curator. Drinks and canapés will be included to make this an extra special experience.

The V&A will be closed to the public on this evening, with access for winning members only to the exhibition (other areas of the museum will be closed).
