Happy Friday! So much great stuff going on this week, as we head into the homestretch of the rapidly approaching holiday season - once Halloween hits, Thanksgiving and the Holidays are just weeks away! So (lucky for you) I have two great tips on today's show to give you a jump-start on your gift lists. The first is today's guest, designer Erica Weiner. Erica started designing jewelry a few years ago, but quickly built both a and name for herself in the Brooklyn fashion scene, and a charming storefront in Nolita. Now, her original creations, reinterpreted vintage findings, and restored antique collections are sold online and in boutiques worldwide. Her designs mingle modern style with historical artifacts in a fresh context - all of Erica's pieces, whether earrings, necklaces, or rings, have a rich sense of story. On today's show, Erica will talk about her boundless passion for vintage shopping, some recent finds at a London flea market, some of her own family heirlooms, and she'll reveal why anyone who's worked in costuming is inherently employable. Plus, I have the preview of Target's upcoming collaboration line with Neiman Marcus designers, which will hit stores on Dec. 1st, and a ton of great music on the show! Today's playlist is dedicated to Maine, and to this week's BTR CMJ showcase artists. You'll hear tracks from rising stars like Kalyn Rock, Lady Lamb the Beekeeper, A Severe Joy, Eternal Summers and more. So tune in as you work on your Halloween costume - Sew & Tell and BTR are here to inspire!
Spend hump day with BTR and check out the BTR debut of Beat Radio’s latest EPs, Hard Times Go. And hear the latest alternative from Cat Power, a beat from Debo, and a throwback set including Gregory Pepper & & His Problems. Also, tune in for info on a trio of festivals going down across the US in the next two weekends: from Omaha, to Philadelphia, to San Francisco! Spanning the country today, it’s DJRePete and BTR!
I've got the perfect summertime style show for you today on Sew & Tell - Leah Reena Goren is a young Brooklyn-based textile print designer, and recent graduate of Parsons. Since her graduation this spring, Leah has already gone on to have her work featured in the Textile Arts Center retail shop, she did a collaboration with Anthropologie's "Made In Kind" designer collection, and was recently spotlighted on Etsy as a "Featured Shop." All this success comes as no surprise when you look at her whimsical, dreamy, feminine prints and contemporary-but-classic cuts. On today's show, Leah shares about how growing up with a painter for a mom influenced her own work, her print-making process, and some great business advice for new designers looking to follow in her footsteps of success. Plus, I dish about the Prada/Schiaparelli Met exhibit, a new eco-fashion shopping site I just discovered, the fabulous weekend sale at Kaight, and MTV's resurrection of "House of Style." All that, and a playlist covered in great new tracks from Heavenly Beat, Cate Le Bon, Eternal Summers, and more - Friday is officially here on BTR!!
It's been unbelievably hot this week in New York. Let's take the summer spirit and put it into the music, which is undeniably fun on today's show. Peaking Lights have a great new album out, plus season-appropriate tracks from Eternal Summer and Cass McCombs. And make sure to check out BTR on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest updates!
