Product description

Review

`A new edition of this charming and wry look at the Swinging Sixties through the eyes of Hulanicki, founder of Biba, the hippest shop in London' --Harpers Bazaar, 2007

`By turns poignant, hilarious and downright surreal, it's the perfect glam holiday read' --Elle Decoration, 2007

'With the Art Deco-era elegance that she made so popular in the seventies back again, the timing of designer Barbara Hulanicki's reissued memoir From A to Biba couldn't be better' --Vogue (US), 2007

Synopsis

Barbara Hulanicki tells the story of the rise and fall of the tiny, chaotic boutique that grew into a vast emporium and epitomised Swinging London. The Biba store was to become an icon of hip 60s and 70s London and a hangout for artists, film stars and rock musicians, including the Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Twiggy, Brigitte Bardot and Marianne Faithful. But in the early 1970s, Hulanicki and her husband Stephen Fitz-Simon lost control after a series of bitter boardroom struggles and for Barbara, Biba was lost. This lively autobiography evokes the adventurous spirit of the 1960s and describes an extraordinary life with clarity and wit.
