Book review - The Biba Experience

For all those seeking fashion inspiration from the 1960's and 70's and fashion business tactics that are relevant to today, then this book detailing iconic fashion and lifestyle empire Biba is just the thing to get the creative juices flowing.

Biba is a fantastic coffee table book with substance, documenting the entire journey of designer Barbara Hulanicki, from the making of her business to the collapse of her empire. This book also contains beautiful full page photographs of the Biba collection over its eleven year stint.

This book is beautifully presented with its decadent art deco & art nouveau imagery and eloquently captures Biba's "rock and roll promise to live fast, die young and leave a beautiful corpse".

The Biba experience can be purchased from Ariel and Kinokuniya.
