Delve into the 1960s, with a look back at the exhibition Foale & Tuffin: Made in England, curated by Head of Exhibitions Dennis Nothdruft in 2009/10.
Through this online talk, Dennis will explore the work of these 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 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, to becoming two key British fashion designers of the 1960s and the part they played in creating the changing London scene.
