Biba was founded in the 1960s by Polish-born Barbara Hulanicki. What started out as a mail order company quickly developed into a global fashion phenomenon in the seventies with fashionistas and celebrities alike sporting Biba's signature smock dresses. The Biba look consisted of what Hulanicki called "Auntie Colours" - blackish mulberries, blueberries, rusts and plums. Although Biba officially closed in 1975, the brand's legacy lives on with original pieces highly sought after. Key Biba Vintage pieces to look out for include the iconic pinafore dresses and retro printed mini skirts.
