Barbara Hulanicki’s BIBA Shop grew from one room to a five-story department store as it became an icon of hip ’60s and ’70s London and a hangout for artists, movie stars, and rock musicians, including David Bowie, Twiggy, and Marianne Faithfull. BIBA’s black-and-gold Deco-style logo is still a familiar symbol of Swinging London’s heyday as a world capital of fashion, music, and the arts, but in the early 1970s Hulanicki and her husband, Stephen Fitz-Simon, lost control of their business and for Barbara, BIBA was gone. This lively autobiography evokes the adventurous spirit of the 1960s and describes an extraordinary life with clarity and wit.
