Founded by Barbara Hulanicki in the early 1960s, Biba was for a time the most fashionable clothing label in London. The Biba logo was designed by John McConnell, who worked in the London-based design practice Pentagram. The logo encapsulates the Biba aesthetic, which drew inspiration from such sources as Art Nouveau and Art Deco-era Hollywood.
