23. Mary Quant’s mini dress
While Rudi Gernreich was exposing breasts (in a totally chic way, of course), Mary Quant was raising hemlines. Mary was responsible for the boundary-crossing mini dresses that were at the forefront of the sixties fashion revolution. She later received an OBE for her efforts, but maintained it was her customers that were really in charge, saying: ‘It was the girls on the King’s Road who invented the mini.’
