It’s Milk Week here on BTR & for fashion fans, that can only mean one label: Black Milk! On today’s show, I have an interview with Cameron Parker, Marketing & Operations Director for the hot young Australian-based label, who will talk about how he got involved with the company when designer James Lillis was still working out of his kitchen, his strategy to build the brand using social media in lieu of advertising, Black Milk’s impressive in-house production infrastructure, and a few of their most popular collections and collaborations.

Plus, a subtly milk-themed playlist full of tracks from great indie releases of 2013, including Love Inks, Cold War Kids, Typhoon, Cheyenne Mize, and more. So tune in and do that body good with Sew & Tell on BreakThru Radio!
