In 1968 Barbara Hulanicki launched the first of her new-look BIBA catalogues. There were six in total and each one featured a different model and a different photographer (although Hans Feurer shot two). The catalogues were designed by John McConnell and featured the new art nouveau-inspired BIBA logo. Its elongated shape was specially designed to fit through the letter box. Each issue represented a complete collection designed by Hulanicki which was available through mail-order only. It was the first time that the complete BIBA look was captured and presented through photography. This present catalogue was shot by Hans Feurer. The clothes, ranging from a trouser suit to a satin neglige, are modelled by Stephanie Farrow, sister of Mia. Hair is by Cheveux and Lion is by Zoo-Rama.
