Barbara Hulanicki (Biba) (1936-)

Museum no. T.472-1993
Given by Suzanne Pegley

By 1971 the Biba boutique had grown into a large store stocking a wide range of Biba clothes. There were separate departments for menswear, childrenswear and household accessories. Barbara Hulanicki designed all the clothes and retained control of the colour co-ordination of all other products. This dress, with its swirling paisley design, is typical of the palette used for Biba's 'Granny' prints.
