Mary Quant

Mary Quant: a mod designer of swinging London. She popularized the miniskirt (and named it!), patterned tights, and hot pants. Her models included Twiggy and Pattie Boyd. All of this happened after she went to college for illustration and opened a store, Bazaar, with her husband. She might just be the most influential designer of the 60's! :)
