This week, I got to speak with talented young photographer, actor and NYU student Sasha Frolova, whose recently made headlines with a unique portrait series featuring her grandmother. Sasha selected specific F/W 2015 beauty looks from the runways of February’s NYFW, and replicated them on her grandmother, creating a surreal, dream-like, compelling series that challenges preconceptions of age and beauty, and raises questions about feminine identity within fashion. On today’s show, you’ll hear from Sasha about her discovery of photography, why she wanted to create this series with her grandmother, the incredible fashion icon and role model her grandmother has been in her life, her latest photography project, and more. Plus, I’ve got a playlist filled with the latest indie releases including brand new Sufjan Stevens and The Cribs, as well as tracks off the debut albums from two talented singer-songwriters, Sarah Bethe Nelson and Shana Falana. So join us and learn in style - fashion class is in session with Sew & Tell on BTR!
Enjoy your Monday mix with DJ Wynn!
