Exhibition Dates: 23 October 2009 – 24 February 2010
The Fashion and Textile Museum stages a retrospective exhibition of Foale and Tuffin – two influential designers who were at the heart of the cultural explosion in London in the sixties.
The Foale and Tuffin label was what cool girls wore – colourful, pop-inspired mini-dresses and trend-setting trouser suits were just some of the key pieces that were ahead of their time in developing popular, desirable fashion.
Foale and Tuffin – Made in England presents a vibrant and inspiring representation of two key British fashion designers of the 1960s and the part they played in creating the changing London scene. It revisits the Sixties vibe by recreating their boutique, showroom and design studio and charts the very personal story of two women who set up on their own with just a lot of courage and £200 in their pockets!
FOALE AND TUFFIN The Sixties. A Decade in Fashion’ the accompanying book to the exhibition is available at the Fashion and Textile Museum online shop
