It’s Travel Week on BTR, and on today’s special encore Sew & Tell, we’re featuring an accessory line that will transport you with exotic prints. Katie Wright-Buckley and Megan Pflug launched CAIRO, their line of hand-painted, one-of-a-kind silk scarves, this past fall, and buzz is already building about these beautiful accent pieces. The designs offer aesthetic allusions to disco, Ancient Egyptian culture, and menswear tailoring, blending unlikely sources to create perfectly feminine fashion. On today’s show, Katie and Megan talk about how CAIRO got started, their use of Kickstarter to raise funds, and their unique vision for the line as an art studio that offers specialty fashion pieces.
Plus, great tunes from Bon Iver, Pepper Rabbit, Peter Wolf Crier, and Male Bonding! Take flight to new summer adventures with good style and good radio… (Original air date 8/26/11)
