Beyond Biba (2009, November Films, 55 mins, director Louis Price) Featuring Barbara Hulanicki, Molly Parkin, Gerald Posner, Twiggy, Ronnie Wood Biba_poster_revised_4_lores.jpg Barbara Hulanicki will always be remembered for Biba, the shop that changed the face of fashion in the 1960s and 1970s. A phenomenon in the truest sense of the word, Biba would leave an indelible mark on the minds and the wardrobes of those who ventured through its doors. Just as Barbara was a key ingredient in the cultural explosion that occurred in London in the 1960s, she also found herself at the birth of the incredible cultural regeneration of Miami Beach in the late 1980s and 1990s. This is where she still resides, and continues to work as highly influential interior designer. The film provides an invaluable glimpse into Barbara Hulanicki today. 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. Jan de Villeneuve Moving to London from the USA in the 1960s, model Jan de Villeneuve very quickly became an habituée of Biba. Through her husband to be, the photographer Justin de Villeneuve, she met and became close friends with Barbara Hulanicki and her husband Fitz. Daisy de Villeneuve Artist and illustrator Daisy de Villeneuve has been referred to as 'The Last Biba Baby'; born when Big Biba, the last incarnation of the store, was closing down her mum and Barbara Hulanicki surrounded her not only with Biba clothes, but also furniture, objects, and fittings from the shop, even down to her cot, bedclothes and pram. Immersed in Biba colours and style from the word go, Biba as remained a key influence on her personal style and her work.
