HISTORY:

~ BIBA ~

BIBA remains one of the most evocative names in British design history; it pioneered a new style, mixing the contemporary with Art Nouveau, Art Deco and the golden age of Hollywood, dressing itself in the richly luxuriant colours of a bygone time. Biba brought the cutting edge of couture to the masses. Brigitte Bardot, Yoko Ono and Princess Anne shopped there, whilst Sonny and Cher, Mick and Marianne were regular visitors among other celebrities and everyday women who fell in love with the clothing which would define an era. 


BIBA is frequently mentioned in the same giddy breath as mini-skirts, Mini cars, the Kings Road and various other London 'happenings' which shall forever define the 1960's as a decade that swung. It was born of humble origins - garments were initially sold cheaply and to many, by mail order in newspapers. But by the early 1970's, Biba - a labour of love, a label, a lifestyle ~ had reached hitherto unknown heights of sophistication, innovation and retail experimentation, via its legendary Big Biba emporium on Kensington High Street, once hailed in the Sunday Times as 'the most beautiful store in the world!'. What linked all the BIBA stores was Hulanicki's skill in creating environments that complimented the romantic, sensual appeal of her clothing ~ and of course her ability to design and create wearable yet beautiful & striking fashion which spoke to the heart and desire of women everywhere. The Victoria & Albert Museum, London now houses BIBA clothing & artifacts as BIBA represents an iconic & historic image of a bygone time.


Biba has now become EXTREMELY sought after & collectable ~ however, the clothing remains, as Barbara Hulanicki intended, a pleasure to wear, sensual. sexy & incredibly stylish!
