Mary Quant: Fashion Revolutionary Known as the Mother of the Miniskirt

From a New York Times obit by Penelope Green headlined “Mary Quant, British Fashion Revolutionary, Dies at 93”:

Mary Quant, the British designer who revolutionized fashion and epitomized the style of the Swinging Sixties, a playful, youthful ethos that sprang from the streets, not a Paris atelier, died on Thursday at her home in Surrey, in southern England. Known as the mother of the miniskirt, she was 93.
