This skirt was designed and manufactured in Melbourne by Prue Acton P/L in 1980. Fabric is from Spain and is used inside out.

A similar garment was part of the costumes worn by American actress Barbara Parkins in the Australian film ' Breakfast in Paris', released in 1981. Parkins, who played the leading female role, loved the clothes and asked to keep them for herself to "show off around the world".
