This book is what started my Barbara Hulanicki & Biba obsession this week I was given this book and became engrossed in how this wonderful lady built and lost an empire but the name is now synonymous with design and the heady emerging days of retailing as we know it and how she introduced the celebrity look to the general public in the 1960 s and 1970 s when everything was ground breaking.

From A to Biba by Barbara Hulanicki £8.99 (Waterstones) 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.
