Fashion Icon Mary Quant MiniSkirt

Mini Skirt of Mary Quant (Born 11February 1934) is a Welsh fashion designer and British fashion Icon,who was one of the designers who took credit for inventing the miniskirt and hot pants in 1960s. She brought fun and fantasy to fashion and showed  a generations how to dress to please themselves . 

Miniskirts had been getting shorter since about 1958. Mary Quant considered to be practical  and liberating ,allowing women the ability to run for a bus. The mini skirt which she is arguably most famous for,became one of the defining fashions of the 1960s. The Miniskirt was developed separately by Andre Courreges the french designer, and there's disagreement as  to who  came up with the idea first like most fashions.    
 Quant was not afraid of novelty and experimentation . Some of her most popular designs were sweater dresses with plastic collars , balloon -style dresses, and knickerbockers and stretch stockings in all colours and pattems. Other typical designs included knee-length white plastic lace -up boots and tight sweaters in bold stripes. 

These clothes become part of the London look.
