London Fashion Week -- say hello again to Biba.

I can't really say much about London Fashion Week because I don't know the designers. I can, though, jump up and down and point to the return of Biba, which was "the fashion house of Swinging London in the 60s and 70s." You can read about Biba's history, and its designer, Barbara Hulanicki at Pari's Biba Site. The site has a gallery of vintage Biba, too, that hints at the fabulosity that was. I particularly like this purple dress. (Blogger has been a bitch about loading photos lately, so please forgive all the links.)

The new Biba's collection isn't a complete triumph as far as this vintage-lover is concerned. The white dress at left (which is not shown well on the super-skinny corpse-pale model) is the most Bibaesque of the collection. I hope the new version of Biba sticks to its roots and manages to achieve fabulosity that is.

If you'd like to read more about Biba and London Fashion Week, drop in on the Catwalk Queen.

Love the dress and color. The model is too skinny. I really like your blog. Pictures are great.
