It’s Climate Change Week here on BTR, and I’m delighted to have Catherine Young, the innovative designer, artist and scientist behind The Apocalypse Project, on today’s show. Catherine has worked for years designing interactive art pieces, increasingly focused around issues of the environment and sustainability. Two years ago, she began working on an imaginative, multi-faceted presentation called The Apocalypse Project, which offers visitors an opportunity to interact with theoretical solutions to projected problems resulting from climate change. Catherine has made scientific research tangible, immediate and personal through this project, offering glimpses into the future of such universal experiences as food, entertainment, beauty and fashion. On today’s show, Catherine will talk about the development of The Apocalypse Project, its Climate Change Couture and Ephemeral Marvels Perfume collections, how the project has changed her own approach to fashion consumption, and more. Plus, I’ve got some news about an important new initiative called Fashion Revolution Day (which is today!) and how you can participate, and as always a fantastic line-up of new music featuring Southwest band Calexico and North Carolina’s The Mountain Goats, along with songs from two very talented but under-the-radar singer-songwriters, Adam Torres and Ambrosia Parsley. All that’s coming up this hour, so grab your cutest rain boots and wade into the climate change discussion with Sew & Tell on BTR!

This week on Sew & Tell, as the station looks at questions and concepts of identity, we'll take a look at unisex fashion. I'm joined by designer Rad Hourani, whose unisex line is admired worldwide for its minimalistic, sculpted aesthetic. A particular favorite of Lady Gaga, Rad's collections are built to be seasonless, timeless, and gender-less, offering unrestricted freedom of expression to the world of fashion. On today's show, Rad talks about his passion for math, art, and symmetry in design, his interpretation of unisex style, the differences in his process for designing haute couture vs. ready-to-wear pieces, some of his upcoming projects, and more.
