Beyond Retro offer a huge selection of handpicked vintage clothing to style-conscious shoppers. The first store opened in East London, and has since built a reputation as an innovative retailer with a rock ‘n’ roll heart. Led by instinctive fashion forecasting and staffed by creative individuals, the company continues to source original wares and kick-start trends. The vibrant, creative spirit of the original East London scene can be experienced in every Beyond Retro store; in London, Brighton, Sweden and online.
This January Beyond Retro invite students (and non-students!) to a talk hosted by some of the fashion industries ‘hot young things’, to give an insight into what it’s like to work in the fashion industry and how they got their dream jobs! Also what you need to do to achieve your dreams, to help you keep that new year’s resolution and get your dream fashion job this year!
