Founded as a boutique mail-order service in 1963, Biba – the

brainchild of designer Barbara Hulanicki – quickly gained cult status,

and outgrew several London premises before landing at 99–117

Kensington High Street in 1973 as ‘Big Biba’, ‘the most beautiful store

in the world’. This book tells the story of the Biba years, from the first

ensembles, through the four iconic London shops, to the eventual

flourishing of a lifestyle brand that revolutionized British retail and

fashion culture.
