Sitter in 3 portraits
Designer. Tuffin 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. In partnership with Marion Foale they set up their own business in 1961. Foale and Tuffin produced fun, youthful clothes combining patterned fabrics and prints by Bernard Nevill and Susan Collier, which they sold through department stores and their shop in Carnaby Street. The partnership was dissolved in 1972 and Tuffin is now a ceramist.
