Happy Holidays! It's Winter Week on Breakthru, so this Friday's Sew & Tell is all about winter fashion. And this week's guest designs the perfect winter accessory that will keep you cozy *and* chic. Claudia Schulz is a Berlin-born, Vancouver-based designer, who started to experiment with making her own hats, after a lifetime spent collecting them. We should all be thankful that she did, because her creations are beautiful, sculptural, and elegant - at once basic go-to's and dramatic statement pieces. On today's show, Claudia will talk about her transition from social work to millinery, the materials and process she uses to create her designs, and the wide variety of sources she draws on for design inspiration - from Bauhaus architecture to Cape Town, South Africa. Plus, a playlist full of delightfully wintery tracks, featuring songs from Lia Ices, Miike Snow, Bon Iver, and Fleet Foxes, and a handy list of styling tips from Refinery 29 to keep your winter wardrobe in its finest sartorial shape. So settle in with your favorite scarf, and get ready for winter, Sew & Tell style!
It's the first week of 2012, and what better time to focus on nutrition? And not just dietary - nutrition in every area of our lives. On today's Sew & Tell, we'll hear from someone who's helping to keep the fashion industry healthy through an exciting new website. Benita Singh, along with Summer Rayne Oakes and Elizabeth Cloyd, recently launched Source4Style, an online marketplace for sustainable textiles that serves both suppliers and designers. Source4Style is also an incredible educational resource, and on today's show, Benita shares some about the company, the fabrics they currently offer, the future of sustainable textiles, and some exciting new design initiatives that exhibit the changing face of global fashion. Plus, I have a very "cool" playlist today, dedicated to winter. You'll hear tracks from The Loom, Wintersleep, The Subjects, Say Hi, The Bees, and even a song featuring guest vocals by Feist. An action-packed show gets your year off to a great start, here on BTR!
