ENCORE – Originally Aired Dec 5, 2014
This week on Sew & Tell, I’m joined by Taylor Johnston, a horticulturist at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston who, dissatisfied by the lack of stylish, durable workwear available for women, took matters into her own hands and created the perfect solution: Gamine Co. Today on the show, you’ll hear from Taylor about how fashion legend Bill Cunningham played a role in the creation of Gamine Co.; the practical and aesthetic considerations behind each Gamine Co. piece; the label’s production process, which honors historic American manufacturing; some of the exciting new projects ahead for Gamine Co., and more.
Plus, I’ve got a beautiful, nature-inspired playlist of tracks for you featuring Beach House, S. Carey, Iron & Wine, and Tweedy, AND a great holiday gift guide full of suggestions for your favorite botany nerd. So roll up your sleeves and dig into some fresh fashion with Sew & Tell on BTR!
