Wearable tech is the future of fashion, and the past two years have seen a boom of crossover developments in the industry. But one major criticism of most offerings has been the lack of aesthetic appeal in favor of technical functionality. Enter today’s guest with a truly elegant solution: Deepa Sood, founder of Cuff, a new line of “smart jewelry.” The multi-functional Cuff acts as security, notification, and “a touch of magic,” all wrapped discreetly in a selection of stylish, versatile bracelet or necklace designs. On today’s show, Deepa will share the story of her journey from a law office to product design at Restoration Hardware, and then to the helm of Cuff; the unique features that Cuff pieces offer consumers; future prospects for Cuff’s innovative technology, and more. Plus, I’ve got a great playlist of country/folk tracks for you today, including the latest from Toronto’s Elliott Brood and Vancouver singer-songwriter T. Nile. So join us for a glimpse into the future of fashion, today on BTR!

This week on Sew & Tell, I’m honored to bring you an interview with the first fashion illustrator we’ve ever featured on the show. Richard Haines is one of the industry’s foremost menswear illustrators, whose popular blog What I Saw Today is a catalogue of his elegant street style sketches and fashion studies. Richard’s career in illustration is a recent transition, one he comes to from thirty years spent designing for some of menswear’s top labels, including Calvin Klein, Perry Ellis, and Bill Blass. It’s no wonder that his sketches and drawings convey a strong sense of drape and a firm grasp of garment construction, giving a structural anchor to his passionately expressive renderings of ephemeral moments. On today’s show, Richard talks about the path that took him from illustration into design and back again, how the digital era has impacted the fashion illustration industry, some of the moments that inspire and inform his sketch work, a few recent job highlights, and more. Plus, a great playlist chock full of new music including the latest from Wampire, Allo Darlin’, Greylag and Radiohead drummer Philip Selway. So join us for some fine, fashionable lines here on BTR!
Happy October! It’s Halloween month, and if this radio show could speak for itself and pick a holiday, it would definitely be Halloween! I mean, what holiday is weirder!?!? We’ll do a spooky halloween show for you later in the month, but we’re ramping up to it today with cool weirdness from Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks! And don’t forget to follow BTR on Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, Pinterest, Instagram, and SoundCloud!
It’s Debt Week here on BTR, and while debt is often something to avoid, every now and then it can be a good thing: we can, for example, owe a debt of gratitude to someone who helped us out along the way. This week’s Sew & Tell guests will stand to collect a lot of gratitude in future years - Rosa Thurnher and Regina Weir are founders of Factory Girls, a new fashion incubator in downtown Atlanta that’s working to support the local industry and burgeoning new talent. From studio space to production connections, mentoring relationships to educational resources, Factory Girls offers Atlanta’s design community a wealth of resources that give independent designers the boost they need to get their labels off the ground and into stores. On today’s show, you’ll hear from Regina and Rosa about the evident needs that sparked their concept for Factory Girls, the specific ways in which they support and bolster Atlanta’s independent design community, how they’re able to serve as mentors to Factory Girls’ Designers in Residence, some of the highlights of Atlanta’s contemporary fashion scene, and more. Plus, a playlist with exciting new releases from Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Toronto’s The Rural Alberta Advantage, D.C. punk band Ex Hex, and pop/psych/funk duo Foxygen. So join us today as we learn what it takes to turn a city’s fashion industry into a central creative community, right here on BTR.
