We can hardly believe it, but the news is true: vintage stalwart Beyond Retro is ten years old. That’s ten whole years of supplying London’s vintage clan with hand-me-down threads and up-cycled apparel through its own line, MADE. Free birthday treats are in store for all its loyal fans throughout mid-May. There's an evening of live music at the Brick Lane store on May 15 (5-7pm); while the Dalston store is hosting a cabaret showcase organised by The Tassel Club on May 17 (7.30-9pm) and an afternoon of acoustic live music with Hoxton FM on May 19 (1-6pm). Over in Soho, two talks with fashion historian (and half of The Broken Hearts DJ duo) Amber Butchart has been arranged on May 18 – Amber will be talking about 1930s style at 9am and 6pm. If you can’t make it to any of the events, look out for the new anniversary totes, designed by Beyond Retro’s arty staff (£5) and log on to for news of online giveaways and £1000 worth of prizes.
