Junior Miss - 1960s Teenage Fashion

The magazine spread in St Michael News below dates from Spring 1967. The Junior Miss range was created in the early 1960s - aimed at teenage girls who were too old for Childrenswear, but too young for Womenswear.

One section of the text reads:
JUNIOR MISSES have a range of their own this year. This is not a jumped up child’s department  line, or a watered down version of the adult range. The St Michael Junior Miss styles are designed  to suit the very special tastes and figures of the in-betweens.
