I’ve got the perfect summertime style show for you today on Sew & Tell – Leah Reena Goren is a young Brooklyn-based textile print designer, and recent graduate of Parsons. Since her graduation this spring, Leah has already gone on to have her work featured in the Textile Arts Center retail shop, she did a collaboration with Anthropologie’s “Made In Kind” designer collection, and was recently spotlighted on Etsy as a “Featured Shop.” All this success comes as no surprise when you look at her whimsical, dreamy, feminine prints and contemporary-but-classic cuts. On today’s show, Leah shares about how growing up with a painter for a mom influenced her own work, her print-making process, and some great business advice for new designers looking to follow in her footsteps of success.

Plus, I dish about the Prada/Schiaparelli Met exhibit, a new eco-fashion shopping site I just discovered, the fabulous weekend sale at Kaight, and MTV’s resurrection of “House of Style.” All that, and a playlist covered in great new tracks from Heavenly Beat, Cate Le Bon, Eternal Summers, and more – Friday is officially here on BTR!!
