    Mini Skirt

    April 18th, 2013

    A mini-skirt is a skirt that is extremely short and ends above the knee. The general length of the skirt ranks from 4 to 12 inches. Causing a modern revolution by introducing the first mini-skirt in the ‘Swinging Sixties‘ to the public, the London fashion designer Mary Quant, already experimented with shorter skirts for her own London boutique “Baazar” in the 1950s.

The designer gave the women’s world finally an alternative to dress other than conservative.
