Courrèges, André

Courrèges, André
Pronunciation: AN-Dre Courreges

Courrèges invented the mini skirt in 1964 (which he paired with white go-go boots), the swing coat, and the A-line mod dress—making him one of the most influential designers of the last fifty years. After leaving Balenciaga in 1961, he started his own line and helped defined the “sixties” look through his liberal use of white, straight lines, cut-outs, and his SPACE AGE collection.
