The Face of The 60's

Twiggy is widely considered to have been one of the world’s first supermodels—a top fashion model who appears simultaneously on the covers of the world’s leading fashion magazines and is globally recognized by first name only.

Modelling as a profession was first established in 1853 by Charles Frederick Worth, the father of haute couture. Types of modelling include: fashion, glamour, fitness, bikini, fine art, body-part, and commercial print models.
