Film Preview: Beyond Biba @ The Horse Hospital

Biba Poster If you're feeling distinctly unfashionable now the rose martinis of London Fashion Week have disappeared then get yourself down to the London Horse Hospital this Wednesday for a screening of 'Beyond Biba'. 55 minutes long, it's the tale of Barbara Hulanicki, an iconic designer whose shop, Biba, was at the centre of London's fashion explosion in the 60s. First in Abingdon Road and then Kensington High Street, it became the first new department store to open in London since World War II.

The film first premiered at the V&A in July, but is yet to secure any kind of large release, so if you're keen to see it make the most of the opportunity. Hosted by Plectrum Magazine, the night will include Plectrum editor Guy Sangster Adams in conversation with model Jan de Villeneuve and artist Daisy de Villeneuve discussing Biba's continuing influence as well as an introduction to the film by it's director Louis Price. Tickets are £9 and can be reserved by emailing guy@theculturalpick.com.
