NEW YORK — In over four decades, Twiggy has been an iconic fashion model, actress, dancer, singer and author. Next month, she will boost her résumé once more when she launches Twiggy London, a new lifestyle collection on HSN featuring clothing, accessories and footwear centered around the model and her life.
“Before I was discovered, I wanted to be a dress designer,” Twiggy recalled. “I never planned to be a model. It was like a distant dream, but I thought I was much too thin, and much too small and too shy. Then fate took a hand and changed all that, but the obsession with designing and making clothes was always within me.”
