The sixth season of True Blood just ended and I can safely say I have grown to hate the show, but for some reason I still watch it.
When you hear the phrase "plastic dress," chances are, at least for fans of the uber-popular fashion phenom TV show "Girls" on HBO, you think of character Marnie's wave-making dress from Season 2. This week's guest needs no further introduction - I had the amazing opportunity to chat with Jenn Rogien, costume designer and style mastermind behind the youthful Brooklyn styles. (Incidentally, Jenn made the infamous plastic dress herself!) Join us on Sew & Tell to hear Jenn talk about her path from chemical engineering to fashion, the work of a costume designer, the boys of "Girls," a new Netflix series she just designed, her weakness for British costume dramas, and more. Plus, a playlist full of "Girls" soundtrack-inspired songs, including Oh Land, Generationals, fun., and Lia Ices. So break out your sleeping bag coat and best fascinator, and join us for an hour of "Girl"-y fashion here on BTR!
The phenomenon of HBO’s “Girls” has generated a growing desire for female comedic voices and strangely relatable characters.
Supercute! is a an all-girl band from Brooklyn who definitely live up to their name. Founded by 19-year old singer Rachel Trachtenburg -- whose musical roots go back to playing drums in The Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players at age 6 -- and joined by bandmate Julia Cumming, this duo is currently prepping their debut album, produced by British songwriter Kate Nash. Here, the girls are joined by friends to complete the super cuteness, just before they head out on tour.
