Launching under the M&S Woman brand, the collection will be available exclusively online at www.marksandspencer.com/Twiggy 

Twiggy’s amazing career in fashion, love of design and unique appeal to M&S’s customers has helped her to create the exciting collection. 

Working closely with the M&S design team, Twiggy has created a 
co-ordinated range of chic, modern, stylish pieces, interpreting the latest catwalk trends as well as using favourite contemporary and timeless key pieces for inspiration. 

Aimed at the woman who loves clothes and fashion, who wants versatile separates that are beautifully cut, in premium fabrics with dedicated attention to detail. 
We want our customers to enjoy being inspired on how to wear the looks and how to create glamorous, modern outfits that are confident and aspirational and who better than Twiggy and M&S to create this signature style. 

Commenting on the collection Twiggy says; “I am so excited to be developing my relationship with M&S and its customers. This range has been so inspiring to work on and is designed to have a really broad appeal. I have such a passion for design and have worked in the fashion industry for more than four decades and truly believe fashion should be stylish and fun, I hope you can see this sense of joy within the collection”. 

The launch collection includes soft structured jackets offering a chic tailored look while printed palazzo pants are elegant and relaxed. Dresses are versatile, flattering and can be worked into a day or night look.  An edited selection of belts and scarves offer the essential finishing touches. 
The colour palettes complement in soft neutrals and tonal taupes, bold monochrome and splashes of brights.  Prints and embellishment add drama and wow factor, helping make the appeal broad and inclusive.  The collection will expand to include footwear and more accessories including jewellery. 

Neil Hendy, M&S Head of Design adds “It has been a fantastic experience working with Twiggy, she has a very clear idea about how she wants the collection to look, feel and fit.

TWIGGY RESUMES HER MUSIC CAREER WITH NEW ALBUM
‘ROMANTICALLY YOURS’



INTERPRETATIONS OF SOME OF HER FAVOURITE SONGS
TO BE RELEASED NOVEMBER 21st 2011

British icon Twiggy will release her first album in 12 years on 21st November. Next to modelling, music is Twiggy’s other most successful career and a major passion, having scored hits in the early 70s and won awards for her stage performances.

Romantically Yours is a hand-picked collection of all-new interpretations of pop and easy listening standards spanning several generations, each one of them a personal favourite of Twiggy’s, including amongst others Gershwin and Rodgers & Hart, Neil Young, Bryan Adams, Ray Davies and Richard Marx.

For Romantically Yours Twiggy has chosen to leaf through the pages of the great American Songbook and record versions of such timeless compositions as ‘Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered,’ ‘Blue Moon,’ ‘My Funny Valentine,’ ‘Someone To Watch Over Me’ and ‘They Can’t Take That Away From Me.’ From there she realised how much the album should reflect her love of more recent songs, including Janis Ian’s achingly poignant ode to the agonies of teenage insecurity, ‘At 17’; Chip Taylor’s pop perennial, ‘Angel Of The Morning’, and Bryan Adams’ 1985 ballad ‘Heaven’ (having become friends with the Canadian rock star via his other line of work, when he photographed her for a book in aid of a breast cancer charity).

The album also includes a guest vocal appearance by Twiggy’s daughter Carly Lawson on Neil Young’s ‘Only Love Can Break Your Heart’, a guitar solo by Bryan Adams, and a version of Richard Marx’s ‘Right Here Waiting’ featuring duet vocals with the American songwriter himself.

“Music’s so much a part of my life and my career,” Twiggy says. “There was a time when I thought that was what I would do, but these people who say they plan their career, how? I don’t think you can. Things present themselves to you, whether it be acting, singing, modelling, whatever you do. But I love my life, because I do so many different things.”

Romantically Yours was produced by the much in-demand James McMillan, whose impressive resumé includes playing trumpet for everyone from Sade to James Brown, as well as recording five jazz-flavoured albums of his own. 

The Twiggy album release is a joint venture between EMI and the TCB Group, a leading UK-based company, known for creating and developing content, combining artist management, music publishing and brand management.

TWIGGY BACKS CAMPAIGN TO ADOPT AN UNWANTED DOG FROM THE GREYHOUND TRUST

Twiggy is lending her support to an urgent appeal by the RGT to find loving new families for our homeless greyhounds.

Twiggy poses with some of the beautiful dogs at the Retired Greyhound Trust which are desperately in need of loving homes  (PHOTO BRIAN ARIS)

The Retired Greyhound Trust is facing a tough year after homing figures for 2010 were more than 500 down on last year. 

We have nearly 1,000 dogs in kennels across the country waiting for new homes and many more who have recently retired and are waiting for a space in their kennels. Last year we homed 4,200 greyhounds. 

Twiggy said: "I am devastated to hear about the Retired Greyhound Trust's struggle with homing figures. I would urge anyone who is considering a dog to think greyhounds. 

"The sooner the charity can find good homes for those in kennels then the sooner they can free up space for the many more who are on the waiting list." 

Twiggy added: "Greyhounds make fantastic pets. They undergo a transformation when they leave the track. They turn from speed machines to docile couch potatoes who love to loll around and get fussed. All they want is a loving family or owner to look after them. I hope there are families out there who can help."

ALAN TITCHMARSH'S WALKS OF FAME - TWIGGY

ALAN TITCHMARSH'S WALKS OF FAME - TWIGGY

Alan Titchmarsh joins Twiggy on one of her favourite walks while they chat about her life, career and relationships in this warm and engaging new programme for ITV1. 

The programme combines beautiful scenery, archive footage highlighting Twiggy’s career, and an insight into the life of a woman who shot to fame at the age of 16 and is still making headlines more than 40 years later. 

They begin their walk in the picture-postcard town of Southwold on the Suffolk coast, near to where Twiggy and her husband Leigh Lawson have a weekend house.

The town of Southwold has a special meaning for the model, who was recruited to appear in fashion adverts for Marks & Spencer after bumping into the company’s executive marketing director while having lunch in a pub there six years ago.

“There I was in a woolly hat, no make up, pigtails, a big old green anorak and wellington boots. Little did I know that sitting in the pub was the executive marketing director for Marks and Spencer’s, Steven Sharpe. Three months later I was asked to do the campaign!,” Twiggy tells Alan.

The adverts have brought Twiggy back to full public attention once again, But it’s not the first time the English model has found herself splashed across the big and small screen.

During the programme Twiggy tells Alan all about her film career which started with a starring role in the film The Boyfriend, which was directed by her friend and mentor Ken Russell. The pair even indulge in a private screening of the film when they visit an old-fashioned cinema in Southwold, giving Twiggy the chance to take a walk down memory lane.

Alan Titchmarsh’s Walks of Fame will be shown on ITV on Sunday, August 1 at 7pm.

As such, it is entirely appropriate that we should choose London to introduce our beautiful new vessel to the world.

TWIGGY CELEBRATES 60th BIRTHDAY WITH  NATIONAL PORTRAIT GALLERY SHOW AND NEW BOOK!

Twiggy, the original supermodel, is to celebrate her 60th birthday with a display of her life in photographs.

The gamine girl, who was named the face of 1966, has been captured on camera so many times that the National Portrait Gallery exhibition will be a roll-call of leading photographers.

It will include the pictures by Barry Lategan with her distinctive cropped hair which made her name in 1966, and images by Cecil Beaton, John Swannell, Terry O'Neill and both the late Linda McCartney and her daughter, Mary. 
There are also shots taken in 2000 by Bryan Adams and last year by Solve Sundsbo. 
Announcing the display and a book called Twiggy: A Life in Photographs, she said: “Over my career, I've had the privilege of working with many great photographers. I'm very excited to see so many of these portraits coming together at the National Portrait Gallery.

“It's really interesting to see how fashion photography and portraiture have evolved throughout my career.”.

Lategan said: “Those pictures are known throughout the world and I'm proud to have been associated with her success. I am just amazed that she has maintained her elegance and poise.”

Twiggy: A Life in Photographs is at the National Portrait gallery from 19 September to 24 March. Entry is free.

‘TWIGGY’S ROSE’ TO BE NAMED OFFICIALLY AT BBC GARDENERS’ WORLD LIVE IN CELEBRATION OF HER 60th BIRTHDAY
The NEC, Birmingham - Thursday 11 June

Twiggy will be visiting BBC Gardeners’ World Live at The NEC on Thursday 11 June for the official naming of ‘Twiggy’s Rose’. Roses UK, representing British Rose Breeders and Growers and Harkness Roses are delighted to name this brand new rose for Twiggy in celebration of her 60th birthday. The naming ceremony will take place in the RHS Floral Marquee sponsored by Renault at 2.30pm.

"I was delighted and honoured when Marilyn at Roses UK contacted me proposing to name a rose after me for my birthday later this year.  I adore roses, especially fragrant ones and have some beauties in my garden. It was great fun to help choose the colour, shape and fragrance and I’m very much looking forward to ‘meeting’ my rose next week."  
- Twiggy


‘Twiggy’s Rose’ which is bred by Harkness Roses, is a robust, well-branched bush rose, technically a floribunda, which simply means that it carries its flowers in clusters of blooms per stem. These are clusters to reckon with, they often form massive canopies of blooms, as many as two dozen per branch was not unusual during trials of the rose. The branches are stiff and sturdy, well capable of bearing the weight of such a vast crop of blooms.

The flowers of ‘Twiggy’s Rose’ are a real curiosity. The curiosity is not in the colour, which is light apricot, deepening to a richer shade in late season as light intensity diminishes; nor in the perfume, which is a fresh honey-based aroma carrying a piquante edge. The curiosity is in the difference between the summer and autumn blooms. The summer blooms are double, ruffled and rounded, usually containing around 30 petals. They are perfectly suited to cottage-garden situations, although this really is not a ‘retro-style’ bloom. It is as much at home in modern company as it is with roses in the nostalgic vein. Surprisingly, typical autumn blooms are semi-double, they contain about half the quantity of petals compared with the summer flowers, and they open wide to reveal golden stamens. The reason for the difference isn’t known; nevertheless it’s fun to have two different-looking roses for the price of one.

TWIGGY - A GUIDE TO LOOKING AND FEELING FABULOUS OVER FORTY
September 25th, 2008
 
When we reach our forties, something changes. Suddenly nothing – hair, skin, body shape – looks quite the way it used to. And it’s a myth to think that by using Botox, working out religiously and wearing skinny jeans you’re going to fool people into thinking you’re thirty. Nothing can stop the ageing process. But that doesn’t mean that you have to start wearing a twin set, cutting your hair and donning sensible shoes. You can find a new kind of beauty and a new way of being confident – why shouldn’t forty, fifty or sixty be as beautiful as twenty or thirty in a different way?

Twiggy is as beautiful in her fifties as she was in her twenties, and has maintained her style and fabulousness without the aid of any plastic surgery. Women everywhere look at her as a role model and think ‘Maybe I can look like that’. And now, with this practical guide containing hundreds of tips, you can...
