What’s your fashion fantasy? For the style editors of New York Magazine, that answer is found in Greenpoint-based designer Caycee Black, whose glamorous-but-edgy cocktail ensembles they recently deemed utopian. With a background in dance and fine art, Caycee blends the influences of ballet and film into each season’s collection, resulting in patterns and garments that strike a perfect balance between bold and dreamy, dark and light, tough and feminine. On today’s show, Caycee talks about how she mixes the perfect cocktail of paint, dance, and fashion, what sci-fi films influenced her current F/W collection, and her fantasy picks for celebrities to dress (you will want to stay tuned for this!)

Plus, fantastical tracks from some of Caycee’s musical clients including Asobi Seksu and Pains of Being Pure At Heart, along with new music from Sharon Van Etten and Blackout Beach. So turn up the volume, and get ready to daydream…
