Beyond Biba movie!

Girls, time to fuel our Biba obsession some more!


Beyond Biba is the first ever film entirely about Barbara Hulanicki. Her life and work has been sketchily documented in fragmentary newspaper features and various television programmes covering 1960s London culture and fashion, but she still remains very much one of those “where are they now?” figures. The re-publication of  her exraordinary autobiography From A to Biba by the V&A in 2007 reminded may of her seismic impact on the British fashion industry. The book however, brings the reader up to the year 1982, leaving a huge portion of her career unwritten. The film provides an invaluable glimpse into Barbara Hulanicky today, in the context of the contemporary world, rather than through the fugue of nostalgia that surrounds the 60s. The film features also amongst others; Kate Moss, Ron Wood, Molly Parkin and Twiggy.
