NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN (ALMOST)

13th July, 1966 : Bare knees and glimpses of midriff are all the rage – but the Sydney Water Board has banned the mini-skirt. It seems the fashion story of cut-out clothes and haute hemlines has not been universally accepted. The Board’s secretary gave his girls 48 hours to drop dress-lengths. Elsewhere, Australia’s affection for this new fashion look is undiminished, even in Melbourne’s chilly winter. To avoid frostbite among commuting office workers, designers are making their cut-outs small and using warm fabrics.
