Dame Twiggy Lawson DBE
Twiggy will be joining us as a judge on the Future Retail Challenge. Twiggy's iconic name and face has been at the forefront of fashion, entertainment and media for the past 50 years. After being catapulted to fame at the age of 16, and named “The Face of ‘66”, she went on to become the world’s first supermodel, appearing on the cover of most major fashion magazines around the world. Today she is also an acclaimed actress, singer, fashion designer, writer and TV presenter, having won two Golden Globe Awards and been nominated for a Tony. As a designer, Twiggy has created fashion ranges in the UK, the USA and Japan, and is a brand ambassador for M&S. The Twiggy brand is a global phenomenon that continues to flourish, and in 2019 Twiggy was honoured with a Damehood in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours List for services to fashion, the performing arts and charity.
