Picturing a World

Biba viva!

A collection of drawings in the GuardianUnseen illustrations show the genius of Biba's Barbara Hulanicki —said to me, Wow! the Sixties! Fashion! The look was familiar, though I admit neither Biba nor Barbara Hulanicki was. Anyone who wants to set a story in the glamorous side of the Sixties or Seventies should make a montage of her drawings as a mood prompt. See also the Victoria and Albert's Biba for actual clothes photographs of the store and 'From A to Biba' by Barbara Hulanicki for an excerpt from Hulanicki's autobiography.
