BIBA GIRL...MADDIE SMITH 1967







This has been a favourite photo of mine for a long time, It was purchased as a postcard sometime in the mid 90s.  The girl in the picture is Maddie Smith, she had a part time job working as a shop girl at Biba and also did some modelling for them, appearing in the first Biba catalogue which was photographed by Donald Silverstein. 

Barbara (Hulanicki) thought that she looked like a miniature Jean Shrimpton. She eventually moved on to become better known for her work as the Hammer Horror actress Madeline Smith, starring in Theatre of Blood with Vincent Price and Diana Rigg.

The Final Programme (1973) Costume Design by Ossie Clark & John Bates




The final programme is a British Sci-fi thriller from 1973, directed by Robert Fuest and starring Jon Finch, Jenny Runacre and Patrick Magee, who is probably best known for his role as the much victimised writer Frank Alexander in Stanley Kubrick's 'A Clockwork Orange'. The plot involves a billionaire becoming embroiled in the search for a mysterious programme which turns out to be the design used to create the perfect self replicating human being!

Definitely worth a look for some amazing visuals, and for the fashion lovers among you it's worth noting that the costumes were designed by John Bates, Ossie Clark and Tommy Nutter. The hair consultant on the film was none other than Leonard as in Leonard of Mayfair, probably most well known for his now iconic Twiggy cut, which essentially launched her career after the Daily Express featured it in an article with the opening line "This is the face of '66."
