It’s Education Week here on BreakThru Radio, and learning is always in style! So on today’s Sew & Tell, I’m featuring an interview with Michael Londrigan, Chair of the Fashion Merchandising Department at Manhattan’s LIM College. LIM is dedicated to teaching students the ins and outs of the business side of fashion, and their alumni work with some of the industry’s biggest names, including Macy’s, Sax Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus and Coach. On today’s show, Michael talks about the differences between studying for a career in fashion business vrs. fashion design, some of the program tracks offered at LIM, and a few tips for recent graduates as they enter the job market.

Plus, there’s music goodies on the show today from School of Seven Bells, Ear Pwr, French Horn Rebellion, Nat Baldwin, and some brand new Queens of The Stone Age! So stick around – you might learn a thing or two…
