Ever wanted to exude the same sexy prowess as Sam from Sex & The City (who hasn’t)? Or the put-together understated elegance of Kate Middleton (again, hello… all of us)? This week’s Sew & Tell guests can help you achieve a look that blends both those style icons into a single wardrobe keepsake. Anna Zeman and Aja Singer met at Parsons, and formed a fast friendship based on hard-core work ethic and a deep love for polished tailoring. After internships at Rodarte and Carolina Herrera, Anna and Aja decided to take the plunge straight out of school and launch their own line. With a singular vision to “introduce the science of perfect fit to New York’s fashion scene,” the two designers boldly introduced their first Alex & Eli collection in 2009, and haven’t looked back. Alex & Eli offer refined women’s suiting that still manages to be playful, flirtatious, and distinctive – offering women the best of both Sam and Kate. On today’s show, Anna and Aja will talk about how they met and began Alex & Eli, why the love a good suit, their newly-launched custom tailor shop, and plans for the upcoming Fashion Week (which include partying and ignoring Chris Rock).
All that, plus great music today from The Darcys, Damien Jurado, We Barbarians, The Joy Formidable and more. Stick around, suit up, and pay attention! Fashion just got serious.
