Who's Mary and what's so special with her miniskirt?
No, this 'unconventional Mary' being described was not the model but none other than the one and only,
It was a very small skirt that made a super big symbol of an entire generation. Dated back at the 1950's, fashion designer Mary Quant made a statement with her launch of the miniskirt. It was described as one of the defining fashions a decade after which it was launched. Though, later on she claimed that:
"It was the girls on the King's Road who invented the mini. I was making easy, youthful, simple clothes, in which you could move, in which you could run and jump and we would make them the length the customer wanted. I wore them very short and the customers would say, 'Shorter, shorter."
The name of this signature garment was derived after her favorite car, the Morris Mini-Minor. This created an influence in both the fashion world and on the role of women in the society. The miniskirt - Styled and symbolised. Truly we owed this woman gratitude for such discovery. Until this very moment, the miniskirt had still been making its appearance in the catwalk from time to time. Clearly this was, is and always will be in sight. The miniskirt - a timeless piece.
