From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Youthquake was a 1960s fashion, musical and cultural movement. The term was coined by Vogue's editor-in-chief Diana Vreeland in 1963. London was the center of this movement. Teenagers dominated the fashion and music scene. The fashion of youthquake was fun, spirited and youthful – miniskirts and jumpsuits. Supermodel Twiggy and actress Edie Sedgwick were the poster girls of the youthquakers, often on the cover of fashion magazines such as Vogue.

Mary Quant and Betsey Johnson were named as some of the fashion designers at the helm of the youthquake movement. Andy Warhol and his muses were also seen as part of the youthquake movement.
