Happy 50th Anniversary Miniskirt
By Jauretsi
If you can imagine, exactly 50 years ago the Fashion world said hello to the miniskirt. The credit goes to Welch designer Mary Quant, who invented the now infamous leggy garment.  eBay bows its head to Mary for sparking a true cultural revolution. An estimated 400 minis are sold on eBay per day, nearly 3,000 per week and more than 152,000 every year. Go Mary! You can check out more interesting facts about miniskirts here!
