REMEMBERING BIBA: “I hate watching myself on film and I keep thinking, ‘Why didn’t I comb my hair?’” said Barbara Hulanicki after the premiere of “Beyond Biba” at the Kensington Roof Gardens in London Tuesday night. The film’s director, Louis Price, looks at Hulanicki’s history, her rise to fashion fame in the Sixties, and her role in helping to regenerate Miami Beach in the Eighties and Nineties. “Only while making the film have I realized the magnitude of the cult status the original Biba has for people,” said Price, whose mother was a buyer for the iconic Biba store and the house model for the label. “It really captured the hearts of an entire generation,” he said. The film, which follows Hulanicki in Miami and London, will also be screened at the Miami Beach Cinemateque Sept. 11 through 14 and at the Gate Picturehouse in London Sept. 20, where Hulanicki will take part in a Q&A session.
