    (February 1, 1934- )
    Born in London, England, United Kingdom
    Popularized miniskirts and hot pants
    Leading fashion designer of ‘Swinging London' in the 1960s
    Founded her own line of cosmetics (1966)
    She was so naïve about business when she first opened a boutique that she sold many items at a loss with out realizing it.
    Several other designers claim to have invented the miniskirt.
    When she received an OBE, she attended Buckingham Palace in a miniskirt (1966).
    She designed a line of clothes using PVC vinyl and received many orders only to discover that her manufacturers couldn't sew the material.
    She said pubic hair would become a fashion item and boasted that her husband trimmed hers into a heart shape.
    She had no formal training but began designing because she was not satisfied with the range of clothes available.
    She credited the ‘girls on the street' with inventing the miniskirt by cutting and re-hemming their full-length skirts.
    She described the fashions of the 60s as ‘arrogant, aggressive and sexy.'
    She wrote, ‘Rules are invented for lazy people who don't want to think for themselves.'
