Happy New Year! Welcome to the first Sew & Tell of 2014! Before we run full steam ahead into a new cycle of fashion trends, news, designs, and iconic moments, I thought it would be nice to take a look back at 2013. It was a year of genuinely remarkable, distinguished guests; so much so that it was very difficult for me to narrow down the content for today’s show! But in the end, I selected clips from a handful of interviews that I felt defined the breadth and diversity of Sew & Tell’s 2013 broadcasts.

Today, you’ll hear brief excerpts from my interviews with: Jenn Rogien, costume designer for HBO’s Girls and the Netflix original Orange Is the New Black; Jenni Avins, fashion journalist for NY Magazine’s “The Cut,” Wall Street Journal’s style section, and her own site, Closettour; designer Eden Miller of Cabiria, who had the historic distinction of being the first ever plus size label to show during New York Fashion Week; and Sari Azout and Sari Bibliowicz, two childhood best friends with a fashion obsession, who turned their compulsive clothes sharing habits into one of this year’s hottest fashion merchandise sites.

Plus, I’ve culled music tracks for today’s show from a few of my personal favorite releases of 2013 – you’ll hear songs today off this past year’s releases from Foxygen, Phosphorescent, Volcano Choir, and Chvrches. So join us as we say a fond & fashionable farewell to 2013; out with the old & in with the new on BreakThru Radio!
