The miniskirt and the beginning of a revolution

The miniskirt is a garment that belongs to all women and that certainly cannot be missing in a wardrobe, we are talking about a garment that has never faded
for over 60 years, and it marked rebellions and continuous disputes not only on a social level but also within the fashion context.

The miniskirt and its history

Its invention is attributed to the famous British Mary Quant who spread it starting in 1963, although the debate remains as to whether it was André Courrèges
a French designer, the fact is that the miniskirt sees its popularity in the English capital adapting to the particularly flourishing period of Swinging London.
Precisely in this period of youthful rebellion and women’s liberation from the canons of the past, increasingly shorter skirts are requested in the boutique
of Mary Quant “Bazaar”.

Miniskirt and its revolution into the subcultures

The miniskirt marks a change in fashion from long garments to shorter dresses “mini dresses” often infuriating stylists and media still tied to the past,
even the same Chanel that years ago had revolutionized women’s clothing sees in the miniskirt a vulgar garment. The change in fashion is seen not only in the length
and cuts of the dresses, but also in the canons of the models of that period, in fact, another figure becomes the spokesperson of the “mini” style
we are talking about Twiggy, the skinny British teenage model who will lead to the use of increasingly thin models in the fashion industry.

Miniskirt and the use of new materials

After the success of the miniskirt in the 60s we see a decline in this garment starting in the 70s with the advent of hippie culture, as the latter
they preferred an ethnic style and therefore with longer cuts; while he sees his return in the 80s with punks and the use of new materials such as leather,
vinyl and various destructuring and manipulation of fabrics.
