Between NYFW and last Sunday's Oscars, the fashion world has been saturated with glamour over the last couple weeks - but nothing compares with the mind-bogglingly intricate work of Minnesota-based bead collector and designer Gail Be. What started as a handful of classes in beaded jewelry grew quickly into a lifelong passion for beadwork, and eventually manifested in the stunning, full-length, all-bead garments that Gail creates today. Lady Gaga wore one of her designs on the cover of "Cheek to Cheek," her recent collaboration album with Tony Bennett, but its Gail's latest project that has been turning heads all over the globe: Fantasy, the world's largest beaded wedding gown. Join us today as Gail shares the incredible story behind her work, the process of building Fantasy, her passion for vintage beads, and her plans for new designs.

Between NYFW and last Sunday’s Oscars, the fashion world has been saturated with glamour over the last couple weeks - but nothing compares with the mind-bogglingly intricate work of Minnesota-based bead collector and designer Gail Be. What started as a handful of classes in beaded jewelry grew quickly into a lifelong passion for beadwork, and eventually manifested in the stunning, full-length, all-bead garments that Gail creates today. Lady Gaga wore one of her designs on the cover of “Cheek to Cheek,” her recent collaboration album with Tony Bennett, but its Gail’s latest project that has been turning heads all over the globe: Fantasy, the world’s largest beaded wedding gown. Join us today as Gail shares the incredible story behind her work, the process of building Fantasy, her passion for vintage beads, and her plans for new designs. Plus, I have a playlist sparkling songs to match Gail’s work and the winter weather - you’ll hear the latest from Swedish band The Amazing, California freak folk singer-songwriter Jessica Pratt, gospel/R&B legend Pops Staples, and more. So indulge in a little more red-carpet-level glamour with us today as we go behind-the-scenes with Gail Be, here on BreakThru Radio.
