This week on Sew & Tell, I am honored to feature a conversation with Adrienne Jones, Professor of Fashion Design at Pratt Institute and designer in her own right, who organized the current Pratt exhibit Black Dress. The exhibit shines a spotlight on the work from ten contemporary black designers, at a time when that population is sorely underrepresented in the world of fashion. Join us as Adrienne shares about her own career path in design and fashion education, how her godmother inspired Black Dress, the evolution of the exhibit and its featured designers, and more.

Plus, a playlist chock-full of new music, including the latest from TEEN, Real Estate, and Ages & Ages! So tune in & turn it up – it’s time for fashion on BTR!
