Biba Exhibition, Brighton, UK


 
Wow, have you been to see the Biba Exhibition yet at Brighton's Museum and Art Gallery?  This incredible retrospective of one of the UK's movers and shakers of yesteryear and current Miami, (USA) interior design guru has to be seen.  We savoured every moment and talked to some incredible people who were actually there and who shared their fantastic memories of the coolest place to shop, possibly ever?  Anyway, the dark cavernous shop which apparently smelled of a mixture of bodies and marijuana was one of the first places where communal changing rooms became cool and boyfriends actually shared the experience.  The stores blasted out the sounds of the times and celebrities endorsed their products during this 'Peacock revolution'.  It is always romantic reflecting on these times, but.........we want to go back again and again.  A huge thank you to those who shared their amazing memories of this period.
