I had a little mosey round the Biba exhibition at Brighton Museum this morning and was pleasantly surprised. Biba seems to attract avid die-hard followers, I’ve never thought of myself as anything remotely like that, but just kind of quite liked some of her things. I realised after this morning that I like quite a lot of them.
She still doesn’t make it into my top 5 designers (Cristobal Balenciaga, Alexander McQueen, Issey Miyake, Vivienne Westwood, Paul Smith if you’re interested), but here’s some of my highlights. (Photography was allowed as long as it was without flash.)
If you fancy visiting the exhibition it’s on until April next year and even better, if you’re local you can get in for half price if you take along proof of residency.
