It's Food Week on BTR, just in time for all your hot-weather faves (watermelon martini, anyone?) On this week's Sew & Tell, we have some fashionable food for thought! I'm joined by two incredibly innovative minds, who have each created new beverage-based textiles. Yes. I said beverage-based. Anke Domaske is a German microbiologist and fashion designer, who started her label Mademoiselle Chi Chi, ten years ago. Just two years ago, Anke began to experiment with milk-protein-produced textiles, and ultimately created Qmilch, an all-natural, silk-like fabric made from casein. Similarly, Australian scientific artist Gary Cass, along with designer Donna Franklin, decided to try using bacterial growth from the wine-making process to create garments. The result was Micro'be' Fermented Fashion, a flexible, leather-like substance which can be molded to the body, and has amazing applications that extend far beyond fashion. On today's show, Anke and Gary will each talk about the start of their developments, the science behind these unique substances, and the future of both Qmilch and Micro'be'. Plus, music from Beachwood Sparks, Lea Ices, Future of What, Husky, and more! So grab your sketchpad (and measuring spoons) and prepare to innovate, as fashion meets food here on BreakThru Radio!

In this day and age, information is at our fingertips all the time. We're up to date on events unfolding, down to the second, and in the know, even when we may not want to be. And yet this information deluge stays, for the most part, on the surface - unless we choose to dig deeper. I'm happy to bring you an interview today with a fashion writer, stylist, model, and musician, whose editorial work does just that. Tienlyn Jacobson is a San Francisco-based writer, who works with online publications like Fashionising and StyleShop.com, as well as her own beautiful blog Say Hello, Max. With a degree in art and sociology, and several years working as a model, Tienlyn is perfectly equipped to understand the deeper roots of fashion trends and style movements, and her writing reflects this broad awareness. On today's show, Tienlyn talks about how modeling was the perfect editorial education, why she loves Australian fashion, and a few of her own tips on chasing the ever-elusive concept of a well-curated closet. Plus, some news-worthy music on the show today, including tracks from Helado Negro, Firehorse, Zeus, Young Prisms, and Free Energy! So stick around - this is news & information you don't want to miss!
