Сегодня мини-юбки стали суперкороткими, а их дизайн — суперразнообразным. А ведь когда-то появление мини-юбки произвело настоящую революцию не только в мире моды, но и в мироощущении целых поколений! С появлением мини в нашей жизни обычно связывают два имени: англичанки Мэри Куант и француза Андре Куррежа.

английская версия

Считается, что мини-юбка пришла к нам с лондонских улиц рубежа 50-60-х. Однажды во время уборки квартиры Линда Квайзин, юная англичанка, просто обрезала ножницами старую юбку, чтобы длинный подол не мешал процессу. В этот день к ней случайно зашла Мэри Куант, начинающий лондонский модельер. Увидев, как сногсшибательно выглядит ее подруга в нестандартной обновке, Мэри вскоре выставила миниатюрные юбки на продажу в своем магазинчике «Базар» на Кингз-Роуд.

В 1962 году Куант показала свою первую коллекцию с мини-юбками, на изготовление которых, как поговаривали злые языки, требовалось меньше материала, чем на носовые платки викторианской эпохи.
В 1965 году состоялся показ коллекции мини-моделей Куант в Нью-Йорке, а после показа манекенщицы в этих самых мини вышли прогуляться по Бродвею.
