If Anna Wintour was cool with working as a shopgirl for Biba, then it must have been the hottest boutique in London! Ms. Wintour, who quit school just because the teachers didn't approve of her mini skirts, wouldn't have taken a "commoner's job" if she didn't love the clothes there! Biba was, according to Wintour's biographer Jerry Oppenheimer, "a glittering star in London's sixties fashion firmament." It was founded in 1964 by Barbara Hulanicki, and both helped transform London into one of the fashion capitals of the world.

This is why the rebirth of Biba was one of the most anticipated events during London Fashion Week. Bella Frued must have read into everyone's has not lost its hip, swingin' appeal! Check out these photos. This is one BIBAlicious label!

This dress is so very 60's flower child!

Yellow again! Remember this Biba graphic tee! This is going to be a must-have! (It comes in black too)

Another dress that harks back to the 60's. A shirtdress is still a classic after all these decades.

Dungarees have never looked this stylin'!

I'm telling you, a neck-tie top and Little Lord Fauntleroy pants have never looked this sexy. I want! I want!

Wearing a headband this way is so 60's and it seems time for a revival!

How many designers apart from Miuccia, Phoebe and Carolina look as smashing in their own designs? Bella Freud is a walking advertisement!

If Biba's good enough for Anna, hey, its good enough for me! Hahaha!
