SIXTIES fashion legend Twiggy and Strictly Come Dancing supremo Brendan Cole will curate vintage catwalk shows at a new nostalgia festival coming to the county.
Jo Wood, “face of 1972” and ex-wife of Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood, and pioneering New Romantic DJ Rusty Egan will also select clothes and music for fashion shows at the Vintage Festival at Boughton House near Geddington from July 13 to 15.
Twiggy, who was one of the world’s first supermodels in the 1960s, said: “It’s fabulous to be part of the Sixties style scene in the UK. It was a decade full of fun, creativity and innovation and a time when music and fashion really came together.
“I hope you enjoy this exhibition of fashion and music at the Vintage Festival this summer.”
The icon, dubbed “the face of 1966”, will showcase the clothes, accessories, hair and make-up from the decade, all set to the music that was the soundtrack to her career.
In her second show for the festival, which profiles the best of British fashion, music, film, art and design from the 1920s to the 1990s, Ms Wood will pay tribute to ‘Queen of disco’ Donna Summer, who died last week, with a 70s show.
Mr Cole will present a show with ball gowns and men’s dancing outfits from down the decades.
Mr Egan will profile the personal vintage collections of fashion label All Saints founders Stuart and Kait Trevor.
Designer and festival co-founder Wayne Hemingway said: “It’s certainly going to be an event not to be missed.”
