The British fashion icon was reported to have opened her first shop Bazaar in 1955 on King's Road, where she started making a unique contribution to the fashion industry.

In its report, Sky News stated that there is "no conclusive evidence" that pointed out the first person that first adopted the use of the miniskirt look.
