Biba Girl Maddie Smith (1967)


Actress Maddie Smith Biba model Flower Power 1960s

This has been a favourite photo of mine for a long time, it was purchased as a postcard sometime in the mid 1990s. 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 would eventually move on to pursue a career as an actress, appearing in many tv series and films, and would probably be best known for her work on Hammer Film Productions, starring in 
The Vampire Lovers (1970), Theater of Blood (1973)  and Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell (1974).
