    Legs for Days


    Nothing quite matches the lure of the leg lengthening mini. Invented in 1965 by London based designer Mary Quant, the mini has seen the likes of runway models, celebrities and everyday women. We look back at the evolution of the mini throughout the decades and found that while the styles may have changed, its allure has remained the same.
