They went too far with this. 😂
When Mary Quant raised the hemline of her skirts in 1965 to several inches above the knee, the iconic miniskirt was born. Named after her favorite car, the Mini, the miniskirt was an instant success and epitomized the spirit of London in the mid-60s: free, energetic, youthful, revolutionary, and unconventional.
Quant probably deserves primary but not exclusive credit for the miniskirt. One French designer also caught the spirit of the era and did for France what Quant did for England (and America)—André Courrèges. While Courrèges would later claim that he invented the miniskirt, Quant dismissed his claim, saying, “It wasn’t me or Courrèges who invented the miniskirt anyway—it was the girls in the street who did it.”
Quant’s influential position in the heart of Swinging London, Courrèges’ influential position in the more sophisticated Parisian fashion world, and the mini’s easily washable fabric that busy teenage girls were apt to buy helped the miniskirt become a major international trend. [x]
It’s quite a contradiction here, because in every ad on TV, every ad in a magazine there is something sexual. Even if it’s a fucking shoe ad, there’s something sexual being portrayed all the time. I don’t wanna give a percentage, but in a large amount of the commercial work in America it’s sexualised. I think it’s silly that it’s okay to do that, it’s okay to sell shoes with sex, it’s okay to sell makeup with sex, it’s okay to sell clothes with sex or cars for that matter. But it’s not okay to sell sex itself, which is ridiculous.
heyyy anybody notices its wrong selling sex in anyway?
