Astrid Shapiro

Leeds, England, United Kingdom

I'm an entrepreneur, model, DJ, and all-round Lady of the Past. Founder of The Sixties Groove, hosting Leeds' newest 60s party, The Night, every 1st and 3rd Friday of each month, playing only the best stomping Soul music. Creator of the Leeds 1960s Group, bringing together over 300 fans of the Golden Decade in this gem of the North.

I am a freelance model - please do get in touch if you would be interested in working with me, or seeing my portfolio. I am also available to DJ at clubs, bars, and functions, specialising in the sweet sounds of soul and psych music, though more than happy to cater to those yearning for the finest beats from the 50s, through to the 70s.

In what little time I have spare, I enjoy baking, writing poetry and lyrics, designing clothes, studying historical fashion, engaging in radical politics, and blogging about terraced houses, industry and modernist architecture.
