{October 8, 2009}   Stone Age mini-skirts and prehistoric women with a passion for fashion

For four decades, fashion gurus have argued over the origins of the mini-skirt.

Some say Mary Quant came up with the design in the Swinging Sixties, while some point to Frenchmen Andre Courreges. Some experts even claim it made its first appearance in Hollywood 10 years earlier.

But now archaeologists say the true origins of the mini go back to the very dawn of civilisation.

They have unearthed evidence that Stone Age women were warning mini-skirts – along with short tops and bracelets – more than 7,500 years ago.
