Product Description

Documentary about Polish fashion designer Barbara Hulanicki who founded iconic clothes store Biba, in London in the 1960s. Born in Warsaw, Hulanicki studied in England at Brighton School of Art and later opened Biba in 1964. The store, known for its plush decor, became a social haunt for film stars and musicians while its affordable fashions appealed to the young public. After Biba closed in '76, Hulanicki continued in the industry and has also moved into interior design.

Format: DVD
I didn't know what to expect when watching this DVD, but what I was treated to was a rare documentary that both educates and entertains by specifically looking at the world of Biba and especially the life of Barbara Hulanicki.

What the film does so well is let the story tell itself without it being infused with useless snippets of information, instead being very disciplined in providing a brilliant 60 minute documentary as opposed to a drawn out 95 minute one.

The DVD itself is packed with extras and the highlight is an engaging and interesting commentary from the production team who really give an insight for filmmakers and Biba fans as to how they made the film whilst also providing fascinating and humorous anecdotes that are not included in the narrative of the film.

What shouldn't be overlooked is the fancy packaging that the DVD comes in. A very nicely embossed case with bespoke postcards inserted really does make this feel like a collector's item and sticking with the Biba ways it definitely has a high sense of design and creativity in it!

Overall this is a must for anyone who used to worship the Biba brand or someone who wants to find out more about the world of Barbara Hulanicki and I for one am not disappointed with my recent purchase

Format: DVD
Consisting of both personal interviews and nostalgically grainy archive footage of the 60s and 70s from the original BIBA stores in Kensington, Beyond BIBA has been made with both sensitivity for a time that is gone, and the kind of humour that only hindsight can provide. Split into chapters with the use of titles that are reminiscent of those used in silent films, Beyond BIBA proves to be enthralling and accessible to all. I also had the pleasure of driving Barbara around in the Biba promo mini, she is so lovely, film is really good, saw it at a special screening at the Kensington roof gardens

This dvd is a thoughtful overview of Hulanicki's life from childhood to the present day. Each segment is presented like a silent movie as to what is coming next. A celebration of an underrated designer.
