Happy Halloween, fashion fans! In honor of today’s festivities, my guest this week is Toree Arntz, designer of the beautiful, mythical pieces that make up her label Fauxtale. The Los Angeles-based artist is passionate about animals, and utilizes their naturally-shed materials to create breathtaking and dramatic fashion. What started as a few custom Halloween costumes for friends has blossomed into an amazing, expressive full line, and on today’s show, you’ll hear from Toree about the journey that took Fauxtale from party costumes to custom pieces for high-level clients, how the animals at the Wildlife Waystation sanctuary inspire her designs, why she never creates pieces for herself, and more.
Plus, a haunting playlist full of frighteningly good indie music, including tracks off the latest from Lia Ices, Sylvan Esso, and Marketa Irglova, along with older tunes from Bon Iver, Iron & Wine, and Jeremy Messersmith. And I have a few fun last-minute Halloween costume inspiration for all you procrastinators out there! Join us for a devilishly stylish hour of radio, here on BTR!
