Beyond Biba

Barbara Hulanicki will always be remembered for BIBA, the shop that changed the face of UK fashion in the 1960’s and 70’s.

This film provides a rare insight into the woman herself, her memories of her father’s murder, the impossible glamour of biba, the impact of her husband Fitz on her life, her thoughts on modern America, and her refusal to give up and live in the shadow of the past.

The film focuses on these elements, and more, to create an all access portrait of an overlooked and elusive artist.
