Yes - I really enjoyed it (I think there were a couple of threads). Loved the old bits of film, and there was one bit of a Mary Quant outfit with a polo neck, shorts over tights that looked completely modern.

oh,I thought there might be other threads but couldn't see them...loved it grin! I remember going into the big Biba when I was a school girl and buying dark aubergine lipstick and a bra the same colour !

envy. I used to read about it in magazines, but never got to go to one.

my mum used to take me in biba with her, she would have a good look round,find her inspiration, then go home and make us matching outfits (i particularly remember a very fetching purple lurex tabard and hot pants outfit that she teamed with white vynal (sp) boots hmm)

programme bought back many happy memories, she also made me little copies of mary quant dresses as well.
