This week was all about fashion and love – what better combination? So I bring you a new designer this week, that you’re sure to fall head over heels for! Leah Reena Goren is a driven young designer who is currently finishing her degree in illustration. While wrapping up her senior thesis, Leah is also doing painted textile prints which she sells through her well-curated Etsy shop. She’s also creating an Apartment Therapy-style blog called A Future Present that she and boyfriend Dylan write, as well as some exciting new client work that’s so hush-hush, we won’t be able to find out her secrets until later this year! Phew! This girl is BUSY, but take a look at her prints and you’ll see why! They’re whimsical, flirty, and feminine… perfect for romance any time of the year. On today’s show, Leah will talk about growing up with an artist mom, her creative process and inspirations, and a few recent spring wardrobe purchases that she’s super excited about…

Plus, updates on NYFW, and a playlist crammed full of great new music from Frankie Rose, Islands, Damien Jurado, Bowerbirds and more. There’s just too many treats on today’s show! Wait a minute… never mind. There’s no such thing. Enjoy!
