Fashion History - The Mini-Skirt

Twiggy is the face of the mod look, with her large owl eyes, long lashes, little girl innocence and of course her short, short, short skirts.

Mary Quant designed the mini in 1965 and sold her designs from her shop in fashionable Kings Road in Chelsea, London. Practically every designer of that decade picked up on the trend, with Courreges introducing a space-age version worn with "Courreges boots".

Incidently, that hair-do in a short geometric cut (by Leonard) was revolutionary.
