I clearly remember going to BIBA Kensington with my mum and big sister. We used to go to London every year for holidays, every year I would pray I’d grown enough to have a realistic chance of buying (or begging my mum to buy for me) their clothes.I bought their make-up and other things which didn’t rely on my age/size. I still have some of it, including a BIBA diary and my pride and joy………my BIBA address book. I
still use it!!! It’s a bit battered now (must be 40 now) but it’s still possible to see the gold BIBA logo on the front.On my last visit before it closed down (sob sob!) I bought a white crochet skull cap, which was a little too big, but I reasoned with mum I would grow into it. I’ve still got that too!My mum owns the family jewels……a bottle of BIBA wine unopened.
