Hulanicki sold her first designs through a small mail-order business that was featured in the fashion columns of newspapers such as the London Daily Mirror.
In 1964, she opened her Biba shop in the Kensington district of London with the help of her late husband, Stephen Fitz-Simon. The shop soon became known for its "stylishly decadent atmosphere" and decor inspired by Art Nouveau and Art Deco. It became a hangout for artists, film stars and rock musicians, including Mick Jagger and The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Marianne Faithfull and Cathy McGowan, presenter of British pop/rock TV programme Ready Steady Go!. In the shop, a young clientele bought affordable mini-skirts, floppy felt hats, feather boas, velvet trouser suits and unisex tee-shirts dyed in rich, muted colours. Anna Wintour started in fashion at age 15 as a Biba employee.

Typoe (b. Miami, 1983) is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice plays upon the constant tension between the dark recesses of the urban underground and the shimmering bling of celebrity. With both gravitas and irreverence, his work might be regarded as a contemporary memento mori with a smile. Typoe’s work evolves in response to a given situation or environment and he often works with gunpowder, fire, plastic, spray paint, and found objects in the creation of his works and installations., the messenger that while laughing, points to hypocrisy and excess while announcing the melancholy of time lost. Based in Miami, Typoe has participated in gallery and museum shows around the world and exhibited his work in Mexico City, Mexico, New York, Los Angeles, Buenos Aires, Argentina, and Basel, Switzerland. Typoe is cofounder and Creative Director of PRIMARY, an art collective and gallery in Miami.
