Bill Gibb: "Miles of untouched forest hand-printed onto silk... rich fabrics with richer decorations-marbled, hand-painted, feathered, piped...flower-faced beauty", is how one editorial described one of Bill Gibb's dresses. Gibb drew inspiration from historical costumes of the Renaissance. His work was whimsical and just pure magic.
"British designers are story tellers, fairytale tellers, dreamers, and I think this was really the essence of the romance behind Bill Gibb."
