Think that sustainable fashion means forgoing fur? Fur-get it! Time to shift your perspective, and there's a fresh, made-in-the-USA line of fur outerwear called Iterrati to show you how you can stay warm & glam responsibly. Meredith Eggers and Lisa Federico are two friends in San Francisco who decided to take on a new adventure together. Last year, they launched their own line of re-claimed, re-purposed, re-designed vintage furs called Iterrati. Not only are these gorgeous pieces recycled, but Meredith and Lisa re-imagine them into brand new, chic, modern silhouettes that still preserve their vintage heritage. On today's show, Meredith will talk about how Iterrati began, the process through which they develop vintage furs into new Iterrati pieces, and some of their work with non-profits. Plus, a fabulous playlist full of fun new "stocking stuffer" singles from some of the best names in indie rock today, including of Montreal, Islands, Fol Chen, Spector and more. So stay tuned, stay warm, and join us to learn about sustainable fur…

He is the author of the chapbooks [fire!] ([sic] Detroit) and Under the Westward Night (Knickerbocker Circus).

My guest this week is video artist Jesse McLean. In her videos Jesse draws on footage from films, reality tv, and you tube-- as will as her own footage --- to craft narratives that examine our emotional relationships to media. She currently has a solo show up at Interstate Projects here in Brooklyn. Jesse spoke with me over the phone from Chicago about her solo show, the role of appropriation in her work and how an obsession wit twilight fans contributed to her art practice.

Imagine that Jane Austen had written the opening line of her satirical novel Pride and Prejudice this way: “It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a good romp and a good wife--although not necessarily from the same person or from the opposite sex.” In Pride and Prejudice: Hidden Lusts, the entire cast of characters from Austen's classic is here, caught with their breeches unbuttoned and their skirts raised high in this rewrite that goes all the way - and then some! Mr. Darcy has never been more devilish and the seemingly chaste Elizabeth never more turned on.

Pretend you're at the beach, with Animal Collective (for a few minutes anyway) today, plus more, on the S'napse.
Today on Sew & Tell I have two fabulous guests whose line of sun-protective clothing will help get you and your wardrobe ready for all that summer sun in the months ahead! "But wait," you say, "don't all clothes protect you from the sun?" Well, yes and no. While your favorite organic cotton white tee might shield you from a burn, it doesn't keep out the rays that can cause longer-term damage and contribute to your risk of developing skin cancer. What's a beach-loving lady (or lad) to do? Anne Botica and Monique Moore developed just what the doctor ordered: Mott 50. This line of stylish garments are well-constructed, fashion-friendly basics, and each piece has an SPF of 50 or higher! Which means that you can relax and enjoy beach days, picnics, and summer music festivals with confidence. On today's show they'll share about how they developed the idea for Mott 50, what makes these clothes so sun-friendly, and a few important skin care statistics that everyone should know. Plus, some great new music tracks from Agnes Obel, Julian Lynch, of Montreal, Unknown Mortal Orchestra and more! It's fashion Friday here on BTR...
