Long dress with bell sleeves

In 1967, Barbara opened another retail outlet in Auckland as part of the 246 Queen Street development. The boutique was the first Babs Radon retail outlet since its earliest days in Mt Eden, providing garments from past ranges as well as the newest lines direct from the Chancery Street workroom. In the late 1970s Barbara decided to retire the Babs Radon label allowing it to remain as it had been known – an icon of New Zealand style and elegance.
