I have a very special interview for today’s NYFW Sew & Tell; it was my honor to talk earlier in the week with designer Eden Miller of Cabiria, whose appearance in today’s Fashion Law Institute runway show at Lincoln Center marks the *first* time a plus-size line has walked the runways of Fashion Week. (Can you believe that??)

I had a great time talking with Eden about her bold, classic designs, inspired in part by mid-century European cinema from the likes of Fellini. On today’s show, you’ll hear from Eden about how her love for sewing was sparked at age eight in a nursing home, her 20+ years of costume design experience, how the idea of Cabiria’s beautifully crafted, modern styles came about, her encounter with a terrifying, one-of-a-kind fur muff, what it took for her to prepare this S/S 2014 collection, and more.

Plus, amazing new music on the show today from Volcano Choir, Typhoon, Still Life Still, Deer Tick, and more. So pop that champagne, turn up the volume, and celebrate NYFW with BTR!

Odds & Ends
*Curious about the amazing-sounding TV show “Alpha House” that Eden is working on, starring John Goodman & Bill Murray? (Yes. Correct. Goodman + Murray together.) It’s an Amazon Instant original – details this-a-way.
*Fans of small woodland creatures, head here for your minds to be blown by awesomeness.
*Downton Abbey Season 4, HECK YEAH!
*My new favorite pair of shoes. I purchased them for an upcoming trip to Italy, but sense they will continue to be my bffs upon return.
*Hmmm. Pantone’s choice for Color of 2014 would not have been at the top of my list. But maybe I’m underestimating Facebook blue… thoughts?
*Some seriously sweet NYFW Invites.
