Barbara Hulanicki's Fashion Illustration Workbook
Distributed for Unicorn Press Ltd
The heart of Swingin’ London in the 1960s was fashion—and at the heart of that fashion scene was Barbara Hulanicki’s BIBA label. The day she opened her first store, in Kensington, she sold her entire stock within an hour, and the excitement only built from there. By 1973, BIBA had a whole department store, and its tights cuts, skinny sleeves, and earth tones were the essence of fashionable women’s wear.
This book harks back to Hulanicki’s beginnings as a fashion illustrator, offering readers a chance to draw on her ideas and images to make their own fashion creations. Whether it’s coloring a dress outline, designing a hat from scratch, or assembling a BIBA-style print, the activities on offer in this workbook are sure to inspire any budding fashion designer or nostalgic fan of the Swingin’ Sixties.
