Biography

She was born Lesley Hornby on 19 September 1949, and was brought up in Neasden (then in Middlesex, now a suburb of north-west London). She was the third daughter of Nellie Lydia (née Reeman), a factory worker for a printing firm, and William Norman Hornby, a master carpenter and joiner from Lancashire. Her maternal grandfather was Jewish. Their first daughter, Shirley, had been born fifteen years earlier; their second, Vivien, had been born seven years earlier.

Twiggy's mother taught her to sew from an early age. She used this skill to make her own clothing. She attended the Brondesbury and Kilburn High School in Salusbury Road, London.

Twiggy's great great grandmother, Grace Meadows, then living under her maiden name Grace Gillies, died in a stampede of excitable shoppers at a bargain sale at Messrs McIllroys store in Mare Street in Hackney in 1897. This event made the news at the time.
