This week, I’m honored to have as my guest Kelly Holmes, founder of Native Max, the first fashion magazine focused on the Native American community. Armed with passion, determination and ambition, Kelly launched the magazine when she was just twenty years old, and it has grown to reach a global audience in four short years! But that comes as no surprise: Kelly and her team have created a polished, high-end publication with substantive editorials and engaging features, offering an invaluable venue for Native fashion talent. On today’s show, Kelly will talk about the moment that led her to launch Native Max; some of the other Native American women leading the way in contemporary fashion; the misrepresentation of Native culture within the larger fashion industry; the changes she hopes to effect through Native Max; and more.

Plus, I’ve got a playlist full of brand new music, including tracks from Montreal’s experimental Patrick Watson, Dutch multi-instrumentalist Jacco Gardner, and Swedish folk troubadour The Tallest Man On Earth. So join us as we learn more about the exciting, innovative fashion work coming from Native American communities, this week with Sew & Tell on BreakThru Radio!

Visit the Native Max website for features, news, and fashion highlights from the Native American community, and follow them on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, Instagram and YouTube to keep up with the latest developments, upcoming issues, and brand new video content.

Be sure to also check out Scatter Their Own, the husband-and-wife rock duo featuring Juliana Brown Eyes, who hit SXSW this year. And you can read up on the career of the stunning global model Jade Willoughby, who recently collaborated on the lookbook for the most recent collection of B Yellowtail designs.

Odds & Ends
– Isn’t this B Yellowtail dress gorgeous?? I also love this necklace – I’m definitely a fan of Bethany’s modern-yet-timeless aesthetic!
– Lupita Nyong’o blew everyone away on the Cannes red carpet in a glorious green Gucci dress.
– Bangs have been ALL OVER in fashion and beauty features lately, but they can be tricky to pull off! Thankfully, Verily is here to help you determine the best bangs for your face shape, so you don’t make any regrettable decisions (ahem, Amelie bangs! ahem…)
– I’m in mourning for the sudden end of Last Man On Earth’s first season, but excited about this promising, mysterious new show!
