It's Inspiration Week on Sew & Tell, and I have two of the most inspiringly creative friends, designers and collaborators on the show for you today! Nana Spears and Naomi Clark began their studio in 2009 after a successful project in which the curator and artist worked together to produce Naomi's MFA thesis show. The Brooklyn-based design collective Fort Makers quickly followed, and over the past two years it has been host to a wide variety of projects, from scarves to blankets, silk dresses to furniture. The unifying threads that run through these myriad expressions are a playful sensibility united with expert craftsmanship and functional design, yielding products that are perfected in both form and function. On today's show, Nana and Naomi talk about the experiences that led to the formation of Fort Makers, the creation of their bold, unique silk garments, and plans for the upcoming Fall 2012 collection. All that, plus some inspirational new music! Tracks today off the latest albums from Cass McCombs, We Were Promised Jetpacks, Pterodactyl, and Peggy Sue. So stick around, pull out your notepad, and get ready for a whirlwind of inspiration!
