It’s been a CRAZY week here in New York between earthquakes and hurricanes – but not to worry. I have a brand new, natural-disaster-free Sew & Tell for you this Friday. Katie Wright-Buckley and Megan Pflug are launching CAIRO, their line of hand-painted, one-of-a-kind silk scarves, this fall, but buzz is already building about these beautiful accessories. The designs offer aesthetic allusions to disco, Ancient Egyptian culture, and menswear tailoring, blending unlikely sources to create perfectly feminine fashion. On today’s show, Katie and Megan talk about how CAIRO got started, their use of Kickstarter to raise funds, and their unique vision for the line as an art studio that offers specialty fashion pieces.

Plus, exciting new music that ushers in the upcoming fall albums! Pepper Rabbit, Peter Wolf Crier, and Male Bonding all have new releases and fall tours, so take a listen and check out the BTR calendar for shows near you! Take shelter from the storm with good style and good radio…
