BIBA and Beyond

It's all about BIBA

Visitors to the Biba Believers event at Brighton Museum & Art Gallery talk about their memories and experiences of Biba. Stills and audio recorded 23 March 2013.

 

 

A major fashion exhibition at Brighton Museum & Art Gallery celebrates all things Biba and Beyond! The Biba store, the clothes, the lifestyle and the far reaching influence of this iconic brand. The exhibition also looks at the life and times of the charismatic and talented woman behind the label, Barbara Hulanicki. It also includes her successful earlier career in fashion illustration and her later achievements in interior design and architecture.

 

After walking out of Biba in the mid-1970s following the brand's corporate takeover, Barbara Hulanicki went on to work successfully in fashion in South America, Europe and Japan. In 2012 she is now an award winning and high profile interior designer working on major projects in the US and Caribbean. In the past few years Barbara's career has come full circle with hugely successful affordable fashion projects in the UK for TopShop and George at Asda.

 

 

With its cutting edge yet affordable fashion, Barbara Hulanicki's iconic Biba store and label transformed the High Street shopping experience in the 1960s and 70s. Young working women shopped alongside models and celebrities, including Twiggy, Cher and the Rolling Stones. Art Deco, Victorian and Hollywood glamour all combined in striking, romantic and sensual designs.
