  1. Wish the Bus was coming here! We live in a really creative time. I love the concept of pop-up shops and one that travels is awesome. Thanks for turning me onto this woman. I have never heard of her, but have seen her prints. I know the one on the pillow here, called Japanese floral was a big floral design on many of my favorite clothes in the 70’s. I wouldn’t doubt if she had some inspiration for Biba London back in the day..
