20th Century Cloth design and print our own exclusive range of mid-century inspired fabrics, and for those who don’t sew we have recently launched a brand new collection of makeup and wash bags using our fabulous prints.bluemerang_3d_helenA little bit of background…..I grew up in the wilds of Norfolk, under the influence of 50’s and 60’s Rock n roll music with a generous sprinkling of country thrown in.After leaving school I went on to art college, during which time I began to develop more of an interest in the design of the 1950s – the fashions, the cars, the architecture and interiors and of course the music.I went on to work in the fashion/textiles industry for many years but gave up my career when my children came along. When the time came for me to get back into work I really wanted to pursue something I could really enjoy.delano_3d_helenHaving a genuine passion for mid-century style, and a background designing printed textiles for leading UK high street brands, it seemed a natural progression to launch my own business creating exclusive vintage inspired fabrics.I am equally passionate about British made products as I am about mid-century style and have made the firm decision to support UK manufacturing. My fabrics and products are all designed in London and printed and manufactured in the UK.Helen Snell,20th Century ClothCheck out our Gallery below, and visit our website and social media pages at the links above![gallery ids="5887,5888,5889,5890,5891,5892,5893,5894" orderby="rand"] This is Helen’s current top ten tunes:Up Jumped The Devil – Ronnie Dawson

Established in 2007; Get Go Retro is your source for pinup, retro and vintage inspired clothing.

We love the 50’s feminine and old Hollywood glam styles; so it seemed a natural fit to sell retro clothing. 

All items are selected with the express purpose of offering clothes that ultimately make a woman feel feminine and good about herself. We carry women’s fashions from such well known designers as Stop Staring, Lolita, Bettie Page and Ujena, (to name a few. ) We also carry some of the less well known designers by embracing many designers from the cottage industry in an effort to offer unique styles that other sites are not offering. This concept has proved to be a “win-win” situation for us and the smaller designers by allowing us more variety, and the designers a platform to sell their items .


Originally founded with the idea of paying for college, Get Go Retro has been growing by leaps and bounds in the few short years we have been in business. Our clientele are fans of the timeless and classic dresses of the 40’s and 50’. Think silver screen glamour icons such as Audrey Hepburn, Lauren Bacall and Rita Hayworth; or perhaps Burlesque Queen Bettie Page; to the girl next door, Debbie Reynolds.

Retro and rockabilly clothing accentuate the figure and cater to a woman’s independent fashion style with timeless and classic femininity. Retro fashion is worn by all ages, shapes and sizes. We carry all sizes; from petite to plus size. The retro styles are especially flattering on curvy women, so no need to be shy. Our clothes are classy, timeless, and most times, attention grabbing. One of the many characteristics of our dresses is that they can make the transition from being a perfect work dress and/or fabulous dinner dress.


We strive to offer our customers excellent service. If our customer’s are looking for something specific and we don’t sell it; let us know, we will try to find it for you. Our hope is to encompass a wide array of resources to help you create your own style and look. The company has a lot of fabulous plans for the coming year that you definitely won’t want to miss.

Any suggestions on how we can improve, or things you would like to see in the shop . . . feel free to contact us!

We stock the following types of clothes, click on the image below each category to go direct to that part of our website.

Ann Sheppard pays homage to all the forgotten heroines of the early 20th century – women for whom independence, self-assurance and freedom were important. They were not rebels or renegades, they just loved what they were doing.


Amelia Earhart, Gertrude Ederle and Jacqueline Cochran are some of these heroines, not forgetting all the countless female industrial workers who through building planes and ships amongst other things formed the backbone of the technological progress of the 1930s and especially the 1940s.


The fields of women’s activities changed dramatically and the styles of clothing changed with them. Inspired by these times, values and developments Ann Sheppard creates apparel rooted in the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s. This apparel is made to the same quality standards and with the same vintage techniques. Best fabrics, finest accessories and detailed finishing are the basis of all Ann Sheppard’s collections.

 Collegiate Shag Classes & Workshops

Collegiate Class is the result of Dai & Sharon’s ambition to promote Collegiate Shag everywhere they can, and to teach anyone willing to learn this crowd pleasing crazy dance style. Please “Like” our Facebook page to be kept up to date or sign up for our newsletter on the website.


Sharon & Dai Rowland have been dancing Lindy Hop since 2006 and Collegiate Shag since 2008. Dai is passionate about the music of the 30′s, 40,s and 50′s and performed in Rockabilly bands in the 70′s and 80′s. Sharon was introduced to the swingin’ music scene by Dai and has since been bitten by the (jitter) bug.

Why the Collegiate Shag?

Inspired by a 1 hour taster workshop, they learned the smoother, East coast style of Collegiate Shag creating interest and praise within their local dance scene. Since that time, they’ve realised that there are very few instructors doing more than beginners workshops or providing the continuity and practice time that learning their favourite dance style requires.

During a visit to the USA in 2010, they were cajoled into entering their first ever dance competition, and came 3rd in the “North American Collegiate Shag Championships” in San Francisco. This encouraged them to think about passing on, the style, moves, and techniques they have learned from the worldwide Collegiate Shag weekends they continue to attend. 

Since then they have also achieved 2nd place at the Munich Balboa Shag weekend 2013

Widely recognised as International Shag dancers, ”Collegiate Class” is the result of their ambition to promote Collegiate Shag everywhere they can, and to teach anyone willing to learn this great dance style.

Our next series of beginners classes will be starting in September 2014, but check out our workshops page to see if we have anything running near you before then. Our usual lessons run weekly on Tuesdays at 7:30pm until 9:00 in the Beaufort Hotel, Chepstow, watch this space or subscribe to our newsletter here.
Each class is £5 per person.

Please let us introduce you to American Music Magazine.
We’ve been publishing hot rockin’ articles since 1979. Every issue is jam-packed with the facts on genuine rock ‘n’ roll music – our music – all accompanied by a wealth of photographs. There are in depth features on the rockin’ originators, both known and obscure, and the record labels from the golden era. Just take a look at our back issues section to see the treasure of artists who’ve graced our pages:http://www.americanmusicmagazine.com/rpmam.pdf
Our editor is Bo Berglind who was born in 1945 and lives in Varberg, Sweden. His musical tastes range from country to rhythm and blues. One day primitive rock-a-billy is Bo’s best, the next it’s rhythm & blues, teenbeat or country. His particular interest in record collecting has always been Memphis and Sun Records with Elvis and Little Richard the particular reasons to get into music. Over the year Bo’s helped gather information for releases on Bear Family, Star-Club, Classics, Spin, Hydra, Edsel, Demon, Stomper Time and many other labelsAt the bottom of the page you can see and hear some more of Bo’s key influences that helped inspire him to start his musical journey:

Bo’s contact details are:Bo Berglind; Kungsgatan 5; SE-432 45 Varberg; Sweden. email: See above.

Editorial Committee
An editorial committee which includes Kent Heineman, Claes-Hakan Olofsson and Erik Petersson ably supports Bo Berglind in the production of the magazine. They share Bo’s tastes in music although Erik has a predilection for ‘raw rockabilly’ music epitomized by the likes of Jack Earls and Link Wray. AMM also collaborates with the Tales From The Woods collective in the U.K. http://www.tftw.org.uk.
Kent Heineman
AMM publishes three issues a year (April – September – December), each with 56 pages or more in A4 size with full colour front and back covers.
