WE LOVE: "Lost in the Closet: Jantzen Swimsuit and the Cult of the Mermaid" by Amber Butchart

Calling all Vintage Lovers!! Check out this blog post from the lovely Amber Butchart of The Broken Hearts fame (and of course Beyond Retro too). A rare hybrid of many talents, Amber's skills include fashion historian, trend expert and overall fashionista, whilst still finding time to be part of the much-loved DJ duo, The Broken Hearts. Amber spent many years as Beyond Retro's head buyer before bursting into superstardom with fellow Beyond Retro-er, Nisha Thirkell. Read Amber's excellent article entitled "Lost in the Closet: Jantzen Swimsuit and the Cult of the Mermaid" from her blog Theatre of Fashion for a greedy slice of fashion and textile expertise. http://theatreoffashion.co.uk/2012/04/10/lost-in-the-closet-jantzen-swimsuit-and-the-cult-of-the-mermaid/
