It’s Surface Week on BTR, and fashion celebrates surface with print and pattern. On today’s show, I’m joined by dynamic fashion entrepreneur Jesse Finkelstein who, along with his sister Meredith, is behind the creation of two unique design platforms: Print All Over Me and Byco. Print All Over Me (or PAOM) offers its users the opportunity to create digital patterns, then order garments or accessories printed with that design. Byco is a one-stop shop for designers who want to take their ideas from paper to production. Both sites put the power of creativity and fashion design into, well, YOUR hands, and serve as invaluable resources for independent designers. On today’s show, Jesse will talk about the formation of Byco and PAOM, the production process behind both concepts, the components of a successful design, Print All Over Me’s overnight success, Byco’s recent collaboration with ELLE, upcoming projects, and more.

And I’ve got a playlist filled with fresh indie releases, including the latest from Wilco and The Mynabirds, along with tracks off the debut albums from “musical pranksters” Silvertron Youth Choir and up-and-coming British electro-artist Georgia. So get your surface ready for a stylish fall with Sew & Tell on BreakThru Radio!
