Alo! I’ve been a bit quiet out here. I have to blog this before it is too late… a SWANclothing summer lace sock garter giveaway through Westervin. I really like Sarah’s blog and she sweetly inquired a bit about me too…

So why did you choose to name your company SWANclothing?
I think my company may be full of contradictions. The swan reference is one of them. A favorite movie of mine since I was a little girl is Phantom of the Paradise. It’s a really dark, kitsch 70s rock opera by Brian DePalma based on the story of Faust. It’s not soft and romantic or very swan-ish at all. Swan is a character. I really wanted my name to be Swan.

Read more if you like and comment {etc} for your choice of summer lace sock garters. Bye for now!

WOW. That film looks amazing, just my sort of kitsch.

Whoah, whoah. The whole Swan thing is from Swan in Phantom? My favourite movie when I was thirteen! I went to my school costume day dressed as Winslow with a home-made papier-mache silver bird mask thing and an improvised cape…

Amber you really have to see it. It turned my tiny 12 year old brain upside down. And Diabolical Masterspy, indeed! No way re the costume. That is amazing. I love that movie!
