"Flooded With Little Joan Crawfords: Hollywood in London in the 1930s", an illustrated talk by Amber Butchart

As our week of 10th Anniversary celebrations continue we invite you to a special illustrated talk by celebrated fashion historian, Amber Butchart, at our Soho store this Friday (May 18). One half of The Broken Hearts DJ duo, Amber was once head buyer at Beyond Retro and now boasts an array of accolades including writer, broadcaster, design consultant and trend forecaster. Based on the Research Fellowship Amber completed at the University of the Arts in 2007, "Flooded with little Joan Crawfords: Hollywood in London in the 1930s" explores the art of home dressmaking and the influence of Hollywood on fashion in the early 1930s. Amber will be gracing us with her presence not once, but twice on Friday: first at 9AM and then at 6PM. If you'd like to attend the first talk (which includes complimentary breakfast from our Dalston coffee shop), please send a note to rsvp@beyondretro.com to reserve a space. The later talk is open to all - you only need turn up. Both are free and promise to be a a lot of fun - we hope to see you there!
