“Being resilient is a quality that you get over time, but you can also get it if you really believe in something and you’re not afraid to fail.” – John Patrick, of Organic

2013 was a banner year for Sew & Tell, and we’re not slowing down in 2014! The first guest of the year rings it in with a bang: designer John Patrick, founder of the exquisite line Organic and sustainable fashion visionary. Join us today as John Patrick shares about the ways in which Organic has developed and evolved over the last ten years, some of the critical changes he sees as necessary for long-term improvement in the fashion industry, and the importance of beautiful, timeless design.

Plus, I have an improvement-themed playlist for you today that touches on the various aspects of an attempt to change, featuring tracks from the UK’s Treetop Flyers and The Stranglers, Canada’s Montag and The Besnard Lakes, along with brand new music from Daytona, The Pixies, and more. Join us on BreakThru Radio as we turn over a new fashion leaf for 2014!

*Be sure to watch for John Patrick’s latest collection debut during the upcoming February NYFW! In the meantime, check out photos from his Fall & Spring 2013, and Fall & Spring 2012 work!

*Odds & Ends
– Read all about the pioneering environmentalist, architect, and writer Leslie Hoffman of Earth Pledge, and check out this article about FutureFashion, the Earth Pledge collaboration with Barney’s New York.
– Learn more about the story of Esprit and Susie Tompkin’s ahead-of-her-time work with organic textiles. (Did you know that Esprit started in the ’60’s?? I did not!)
– I watched this movie over Christmas, and was smitten by the glamorous turn-of-the-century Russian clothes! (Sidenote: Julie Christie is still ridiculously beautiful.)
– Have you seen this Nanette Lepore dress? Apparently a pic of it went viral, and I can see why… better snap it up for spring while you still can!
– You probably already know this, but Beyonce’s new self-titled album is pretty great.
– There are so many great movies out right now! Tim & I are planning a marathon on Sunday, and hope to see this, this, and this (if we get time).
– A great interview with the costume designer behind some of Downton Abbey’s most exquisite looks!
