Thanks to Mary Quant fashionistas flaunt today in mini skirts.
When the designer Mary Quant has presented the first collection of miniskirts in 1962, caustic criticism boiled over with indignation, they say, this outfit fabric spent less than on the handkerchief of the Victorian era. A fashion parade of models in skimpy outfits on Broadway nearly caused a massive crash: the drivers were ready to jump out of Windows to see the beauty. The very same Mary Quant told me that didn’t come up with anything extraordinary. She just helped women, because in long skirts rush to the bus was extremely uncomfortable, and the pace of modern life demanded change.
