Yesterday, I went to see the exhibition of Biba at the Royal Pavilion in Brighton. I'm sure you know all about Biba but for the ones who don't, Biba was an iconic and popular London fashion store of the 1960s and 1970s. It was started and primarily run by the Polish-born Barbara Hulanicki with help of her husband Stephen Fitz-Simon.
The 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.
I was a bit disappointed, because the exhibition was a bit small but still very enjoyable though.
The exhibition features 60's iconic dresses,lifestyle and the far reaching influence of this iconic brand.
