About the Designer: John Bates, an English designer, adopted the design name Jean Varon in 1959. He is known as an innovative designer at the vanguard of British mod design during the '60s due to his modernist sensibility, short hemlines (credited by British Vogue as the originator of the mini-skirt) and use of futuristic materials such as plastics and mesh. He also designed wardrobe for Emma Peel of the television series “The Avengers” in 1965.
