Mini-Skirt, In Short !

Directed and written by Marie-Christine Gambart

52 minutes


The mini-skirt appeared on the scene in 1960 and started by uncovering women’s knees.

A revolution in the way of thinking, a revolution in the way of dressing.

Whether it was a fashion statement or the beginning of a real scandal, this tiny piece of clothing made a striking entrance into the history of women’s liberation!

Historians, sociologists, leading fashion designers and anonymous witnesses, not to mention a number of archives, all retrace the history of the mini-skirt from its creation until today.

This film presents the history of this symbol, whose success cannot be denied and which continues to turn heads the world over.
