Biba-founder Barbara Hulanicki interview video 2012
We're all getting pretty excited here at VisitBrighton about the forthcoming exhibition at Brighton Museum & Art Gallery on fashion legend Barbara Hulanicki, of Biba fame.
So ahead of the Biba & Beyond: Barbara Hulanicki exhibition, which runs from 22 September 2012 – 14 April 2013, we caught up with the fashion legend to ask about her time spent studying art and design in our city during the 1950s, the Biba years and fashion in 2012.
Look out for local hotspots which all boast a Barbara connection – the seafront’s Hilton Brighton Metropole Hotel, the FAIR shop on Queens Road (once home to Brighton’s very own Biba boutique) and the University of Brighton – as well as sneak previews of some of the original items showcased in the exhibition.
“Brighton’s the right place… because it all started here”, Barbara says.
Re-live her story in the video below.
