A French designer, Andre Courréges is credited with inventing the mini-skirt and go-go boots. He is also famous for his Space Age collection from 1964, full of geometric shapes, tiny hemlines, and bright colors. His use of unique materials, such as plastic, pushed the fashion envelope in a way that had never been seen before, and is part of the reason that the Sixties are such an anomalous decade.
