Foale and Tuffin Exhibition at The Fashion & Textile Museum London

This was my first time at the Fashion & Textile Museum, Founded by Zandra Rhodes, since it opened in 2003
The building itself is fab, bright orange and pink certainly stands out from the rest.

We went up to see the Foale and Tuffin exhibition, Marion Foale and Sally Tuffin were young designers in the early 60's and opened up shop in 1965, just off Carnaby Street.
There were so many gorgeous dresses and trouser suits out on display at the FTM, I felt like a kid in a sweet shop, or a dog in a butchers!

It was like stepping back in time with the walls covered in pictures of Foale & Tuffin Illustrations, photos of Twiggy and Patti Boyd, among others, and 60's iconic pop drifting through the speakers! I was in Heaven for a short while.


Here's the infamous "Double D" Dress as modelled by Jenny Boyd in 1966
and the "Domino" Dress, (the print was designed by Zandra Rhodes)
I will definitely be popping in there again, I vote Biba next time!
Keep an eye on thier website to see what exhibitions they are doing next!
