Marion Foale studied at Walthamstow School of Art and at the Royal College of Art where she was one of several designers to emerge from Professor Janey Ironside's talented group of graduates. She launched a label in 1961 in partnership with Sally Tuffin. Highly talented colourists, Foale and Tuffin produced fun, youthful clothes combining patterned fabrics and prints by Bernard Nevill and Susan Collier. The partnership dissolved in 1972 and Foale now runs her own fashion business Foale Ltd.
