Pamela Mann's History
Pamela Mann are one of the oldest fashion centric brands in the world that are still manufacturing today. Established in 1956, in the UK, Pamela Mann began designing ladies leg wear with some daring and imaginative colours and patterns. Within only a short time, their rebellious and re-inventive spirit caught the eye of one of the movers and shakers in the fashion scene at the time, Mary Quant. In the '50s and '60s, Mary Quant was responsible for some of the most daring new innovations in fashion, eschewing tradition and establishment for beautiful and exciting new clothing.
Mary Quant is famous many different achievements in the world of fashion, such as helping define and shape the nature of the "Mod" subculture in the UK in the 1960s. Some might say that without Quant and designers like her, the Mods would not have formed quite so distinctly and like any sub genre, without a distinct style, this group might not have emerged at all. But Mary Quant is known for one thing above all. She was the designer that invented the miniskirt. At the time, the invention of something so daring and sexual was seen as problematic and controversial, but there is one thing that we can be certainly sure of, the miniskirt has had a huge impact on fashion, particularly patterned tights and has changed the world of clothing forever more. The impact on leg wear is clear. With a skirt so short and revealing, the leg is on show and the tights become instantly more noticeable. That means any pattern is more noticeable and impactful and that a too subtle pattern can easily look flat. Leg wear was changed for ever after this invention and designers suddenly had to make each new design of theirs a lot more attractive and colourful if they hoped to catch a leg wear lovers attention.
