Twist Baby Twist - a psychedelic evening of laughter and fun!

The much anticipated night ‘Twist Baby Twist’ was a riotous success last Friday at the Fashion and Textile Museum. A celebration of the psychedelic sixties, ‘Twist Baby Twist’ was inspired by its location - the acclaimed exhibition ‘Foale and Tuffin – Made in England’, which charts the phenomenal impact Marion Foale and Sally Tuffin had upon London fashion in the 1960’s and their part in the youthquake movement.

First stop was the hair and make-up team, who transformed twenty-first century girls and boys into sixties icons. Next, a rail of vintage clothes and accessories formed the perfect sixties dressing up box. A quick pout in the ‘David Bailey Photo Booth’ and the night was ready to get underway.

With daisy chains adorning every head, hosts The Supreme Sisters belting out such classics as ‘Stop! In the Name of Love’ and live music from Bebe & Paulo, Remi Nicole and Theoretical Girl and The Equations, ‘Twist Baby Twist’ was a fun filled evening of grooving on down!

A lively catwalk presentation from Pop Boutique Fashion Shows was the cherry on top of an evening of laughter and fun. Be sure to check out the fantastic Foale and Tuffin Exhibition at the Fashion and Textile Museum to have some sixties nostalgia of your own.

‘The Foale and Tuffin – Made in England’ exhibition at the Fashion and Textile Museum is open to the public now until the 24th February 2010. For further information please visit
