MARCH had its first preview of the mini-sweater in 1966 at a fashion show organised by the Young Conservatives.

The mini-sweater was the must-have fashion item of that year and was worn with a kilt - leaving a bare patch between the sweater and kilt.

The show had been organised and compered by Mary Robertson of Maison Veal, March, and did not deal entirely with "way-out and mod gear".

All the clothes were modern but many were sophisticated and included trouser suits, day dresses, cocktail dresses, evening wear and coats.

Models for the show were Gillian Vawser, Susan Ghelcken, Rowena Tribe, Enid Dickinson and Pauline McGrath.
