The heart of Swingin' London in the 1960s was fashion--and at the heart of that fashion scene was Barbara Hulanicki's BIBA label. The day she opened her first store, in Kensington, she sold her entire stock within an hour, and the excitement only built from there. By 1973, BIBA had a whole department store, and its tights cuts, skinny sleeves, and earth tones were the essence of fashionable women's wear. This book harks back to Hulanicki's beginnings as a fashion illustrator, offering readers a chance to draw on her ideas and images to make their own fashion creations. Whether it's coloring a dress outline, designing a hat from scratch, or assembling a BIBA-style print, the activities on offer in this workbook are sure to inspire any budding fashion designer or nostalgic fan of the Swingin' Sixties.

A revealing look at the fashion revolution of the 1960s and '70s through the groundbreaking, hip, and now-legendary London emporium Biba, this book looks at “the most beautiful store in the world.” Biba, founded in 1963 by designer Barbara Hulanicki, quickly gained cult status and outgrew several locations before the five-story “Big Biba” opened in 1973. More than a store, it was a haven of cool for artists, movie stars, and rock musicians. This book tells the story of the Biba decade, and how the label revolutionized retail and fashion culture. With a wealth of previously unpublished material, including full-color facsimiles of the six luxurious Biba catalogs and archival photographs, The Biba Decade looks at the first retailer to bring affordable fashion to young consumers. Stunning new photography documents the unique Biba look, and the designer and her contemporaries offer their personal insights.
