When Twiggy Came To Yorkshire

It’s not every day you get to meet a 60’s icon, yet the other week I had the pleasure of  meeting Twiggy!

The event was held at the M&S Archive Museum in early April in Leeds and was to launch the new Twiggy Archive Collection online and in-store.

On the day 5 style-led bloggers, including myself and a whole lot of M&S loyalty card holders were treated to an archive catwalk show (which included items from the new, retro inspired Twiggy collection), afternoon tea and… wait for it.. a chance to meet the lady herself! Actual Twiggy!

On the day I donned my best baker boy hat (of course) and was feeling groovier than a fox in bell bottoms, backstage at a Beatles gig.

The day started with a catwalk show took us all back in time to bygone eras of the 20’s right through to the present day, with a particularly patterned entrance from my favourite era, the 1970s. How fabulous are the aviators in the picture? We saw some dreamy maxi dresses and hats too …We were in vintage clothing heaven! Aside from the gorgeous threads on parade, it was actually all very informative and it’s safe to say we all learnt a thing or two about how  styles and materials have evolved overtime.
