I really didn't know who designed the mini-skirts but I enjoyed wearing them a great deal during my late teens, twenties, and thirties. I am happy to say that I wore them well. For Mr. Courreges and his designs I am truly thankful. My condolences to his family and may you all find solace in God's promise at Jeremiah 29:11-12!
