Vintage Fashion Clothing Blog | Beyond Retro
Posted on July 22, 2014With festival season well and truly underway we’ve taken a psychedelic trip back in time to the original festival – Woodstock – and created a collection that will make your festival wardrobe truly rock and roll! Inspired by the crazy-daisy days of the 60s and 70s, when love was free and everyone was turning on, tuning in and dropping out, we've nailed hippy-chic. Think style icons like Stevie Nicks, Frank Zappa and The GTOs, Janis Joplin and Fleetwood Mac. There is now absolutely no need to look drab in a pac-a-mac and wellies at a festival when you can come and add a touch of flower power to your look with Pucci-esque pattern, suede tasselled waistcoats, clashing prints, crocheted dresses and suede shorts. Embrace your inner flower child and stand out in the fields of love! Shop Women's 70s > Shop Men's 70's >

Posted on July 18, 2014We worked with super talented photographer Lily Brown to shoot ourgot her to answer a little Q&A about who she is and what she does…Summarise who you are, what you do?My names lily Brown, I'm 22 and currently living in Brighton. I'm a fashionphotographer and I run a streetwear blog called By The Level. The majority ofmy shoots are for the blog so shoot a lot of lookbooks for brands and stores.What made you decide to take this career path?I was never sure what I wanted to do so I did an Art Foundation at UCAEpsom where you did a bit of everything. After then I studied Fashion mediaand promotion where I then focused on photography. I started By The Levellast summer with Kieran and it all kicked off from there really.Where do you get your inspiration from?Living in Brighton I'm constantly surrounded by creative and like mindedpeople with a great location to get ideas from. I like to shoot people in theirnatural environment so most of the time I get different ideas whilst we're onthe shoot!What do you most enjoy about your area of work?I've met some amazing people and working with my favourite brands andstores is pretty cool!Who is your favourite (person in your field) and why?I don't think I could pick an all time favourite, I like looking at up and comingpeople and who's work I can relate to. At the moment I love seeing HollieFernando's film photography and I love the general aesthetics of RebeccaNaens shots.
