Born today was Mary Quant:
In her life fashion was paramount.
Feminine legs are much better overt
And so she invented the miniskirt.
I love vulgarity, good taste is death, vulgarity is life”
― Mary Quant
Being true to her principles, she was appointed in 1966 to the Order of the British Empire and arrived at Buckingham Palace to accept the award in a cream wool jersey minidress with blue facings.
