Editorial In 1964 fashion was mini skirt, and just about anything cool that manufacturers could hype. Mini skirts and mini dresses started popping up on hipsters in 1964. And, both Andre Courrèges, a French fashion designer, and Mary Quant, a Brit, claimed to have invented the mini. The truth is (most likely) that Courreges invented the mini dress and Mary Quant popularized it.
Being A Teenager in 1964 • The sixties were the age of youth, as70 million children from the post-war (the period after a war)baby boom became teenagers and young adults. The movement away from the conservative fifties continued and eventually resulted in revolutionary ways of thinking and real change in the cultural fabric of American life. No longer content to be images of the generation ahead of them, young people wanted change. The changes affected education, values, lifestyles, laws, and entertainment. Many of the revolutionary ideas which began in the sixties are continuing to evolve today.
