Please forgive me, I am a day late with this. How could I have forgotten? July 5, 1946 marks the day when a certain fashion item made it’s debut at a Paris fashion show.

  • The bikini was developed from a competition between Reard and another fashion designer Jacques Heim to come with the world’s smallest swimsuit…
  • The bikini was an instant success. Men especially liked it and Reardon received over 50,000 “fan” letters…
  • Louis Reard was a former mechanical engineer…

Enjoy this cute Youtube video featuring a skit set to the Brian Hyland oldies classic, “Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini”.
