    Background: CHRISTIAN DIOR'S AUTUMN AND WINTER FASHIONS WENT ON DISPLAY IN LONDON TODAY (TUESDAY) - AND WERE PICKETED OUTSIDE BY A GROUP WHO CALLED THEMSELVES "THE BRITISH SOCIETY FOR THE PRESERVATION OF THE MINI-SKIRT."
    INSIDE THE DIOR BOUTIQUE, MODELS WERE SHOWING THE MOST-FAVOURED COAT STYLES FOR THE COMING MONTHS; FIRST IN OUR FILM (ON THE LEFT) IS THE MILITARY STYLE IN RED WITH MID-CALF LENGTH. THEN, ON THE RIGHT, THE TENT COAT, JUST ABOVE THE KNEE.

    NEXT CAME A DRESS COVERED IN SEQUINS WITH MATCHING STOCKINGS, FOLLOWED BY A MODEL IN A LONG EVENING DRESS - ALSO IN SEQUINS. FINALLY - AND PERHAPS THE PROOF THAT MINI-SKIRTS ARE NOT REALLY "OUT" - MODELS WITH LONG COATS, LONG BOOTS- AND MINI-SKIRTS UNDER THE COATS.

    THE BRITISH SOCIETY FOR THE PRESERVATION OF MINI-SKIRTS CLAIMS TO HAVE MORE THAN 200 MEMBERS. ONLY FOUR OF THEM TURNED UP TODAY, HOWEVER - CARRYING BANNERS SAYING "DIOR UNFAIR TO MINI-SKIRTS" AND "MINI-SKIRTS FOREVER."
