Barbara Hulanicki @ Fashion & Textile Museum

22 March 2024 - 8 September 2024

In 1963, fashion illustrator Barbara Hulanicki established a mail-order company selling affordable fashion appealing to a new generation of young women, which she named Biba.

The Biba Story explores how it became the world’s first lifestyle label, sparking a revolution in how people shopped, and how Biba earned its spot as the fashion brand of the 1960s and 1970s.

The exhibition focuses on years 1964 – 1975, when Big Biba closed its doors to the public. The exhibition displays archival pieces of clothing, original photographs, film, and material, all personally chosen by Barbara Hulanicki.
