Happy Fashion Friday! On this week’s Sew & Tell, I had the honor of chatting with Penelope Sacorafou of the London-based company Fox & Squirrel. Fox & Squirrel offers a variety of cultural lifestyle walks – tours that take you around London to some of its best fashion, art, and vintage spots. On today’s show, Penelope will talk about how she and co-founder Jojo Provatidou met and started Fox & Squirrel, some of her favorite independent designers in today’s London fashion industry, what “sustainable style” truly means and how they incorporate consumer education into their walks, and potentially detrimental impact that the Olympics could have on local London culture.

Plus, new music from a host of great BTR artists, including Dent May, Glen Hansard, The Tallest Man On Earth, The Temper Trap and more. So stick around, and learn how to shop like an Anglophile!
