Fall has begun, and we felt it nip at our heels this week in New York! Yes indeed, it is time for the seasonal wardrobe change-over, and sad as I am to see those sundresses go into storage for the next few months, I am definitely ready to break out my fall boots, sweaters, scarves and hats! Just in time for the first frost, I have a talented designer whose debut Fall/Winter 2011 Collection offers a myriad of elegant solutions for stylish warmth. Shui Chen was born and raised in Taiwan, and after studying fine art there, she came to the U.S. to pursue fashion. And lucky for us! Shui's fall collection is full of Alpaca wool, silk, and leather, offering the warmth of your grandfather's sweater with the modern simplicity and versatility of today's runway. On today's show, Shui will tell us what brought her fine art to fashion, her sculptural approach to garments, what's ahead for Spring/Summer 2012, and her favorite place to find fall leaves in NYC! Plus, in honor of both fall and BTR's Genre Week, today's playlist is a celebration of a few of my favorite musical genres. This is an autumnal mix of freak folk, alt country, vintage surfer-pop and electronica, including artists like Bonnie "Prince" Billy, Sufjan Stevens, Little Scream, Phophorescent, ceo, Bon Iver & more. So stick around and warm up some apple cider...
