We will never get enough of miniskirts!

Since the early 1960s, miniskirts have existed as a symbol of women’s liberation.

Designers like Mary Quant and Yves Saint Laurent have made them the real manifesto of the feminist movement.

During the Swinging Sixties miniskirts became so politicized that when designers like Dior failed to show them on the runway, a group of women who called themselves the “British Society for the Protection of Mini Skirts,” protested outside of the show with signs that read, “Mini skirts forever.”

During the Nineties, models like Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Cindy Crawford kept the trend alive. Now, miniskirt is considered one of the greatest revolutions in modern society.

Like Mary Quant said, “A woman is as young as her knees.”
