Since I wore my mom’s old stovepipe pants to work (at the vintage store) today I decided to start a bit of research on 60s and 70s fashion. Found out about the lovely and iconic designer, Mary Quant, and decided to share my finds. ;)
The British designer was one of the primary revolutionaries to do away with the frilly petticoats and bodices from the 50s and introduced the super-short shift dress in 1958 to represent the forthcoming 60s fashion. The shapeless design seemed more like it was made for children. The idea stems from Greek and Roman tunics, which was actually a working outfit for men worn with tights or leggings underneath!
