With a new year just around the corner, I’m taking this opportunity to look back at 2014 on Sew & Tell. This week’s show is my annual year-end highlight show, featuring just a few of the incredible guests who have contributed to this year’s engaging fashion coverage. You’ll hear clips from my conversations with: Lisa Padovani, costume designer for HBO’s Boardwalk Empire; Gabriel and Sarah Chrisman, a young husband and wife in Seattle who have adopted a “Victorian lifestyle,” complete with historically accurate clothing (including corsets!); Kara Eschbach, co-founder of Verily, a women’s lifestyle publication with a firm no-Photoshop policy; and documentarians Ismail Ferdous and Nathan Fitch, co-founders of Cost of Fashion, who covered the 2013 Rana Plaza factory collapse. It’s a great, but by no means exhaustive, cross-section of guests from 2014, and I hope you’ll also take some time to check out the links to other highlight shows from the past year that I’ve provided on today’s playlist page.

I’m also featuring music highlights from the past year – you’ll hear my favorite tracks from my favorite 2014 albums on today’s show. So join me as I look back at a year full of fashion, here on BreakThru Radio…
