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.
