It’s Grace Kelly! It’s Audrey Hepburn! No, it’s… you! On today’s show, I talk with Leslie Tessler, the design talent and passion behind a beautiful new line of elegant capes. Inspired by her grandmother’s collection of vintage capes, Leslie set out to modernize the dramatic elegance of yesterday for today’s woman. Her pieces are bold, classic, and so chic they make a solid case for the indispensability of a cape in every woman’s wardrobe. On the show, we’ll hear from Leslie about how her love affair with the cape began, when she decided to start her line, some of the beautiful materials she uses, styling tips, and future plans for the line.

Plus, music from the BTR Discovery Artist Dan Mangan, along with The War on Drugs, Mumford & Sons, San Francisco newcomers the Evil Eyes, and more. So tune in for your weekly fashion tune-up with Sew & Tell on BreakThru Radio!
