Happy Friday, and happy official start to the holiday shopping season! On today's show, I'm joined by Alice Wu of Feral Childe clothing, one of my personal favorite lines. I first interviewed Alice last August, and we spoke about her and partner Moriah's design work, the launch of their collaborative label, some of the challenges of sustainable production, and their copyright suit against Forever 21, due to the theft of one of their original print designs. Today, I get to catch up with Alice about the resolution of the law suit, their current F/W 2012 collection titled "Infinite Librarian," and some exciting changes and opportunities that have come to Feral Childe over the last year. Plus, news on some Small Business Saturday shopping opportunities, along with a playlist full of new tracks from Thao & The Get Down Stay Down, The Babies, Only You, and more from the new Sufjan Stevens Christmas album. So join us in giving thanks for independent design & music, on BreakThru Radio!

This Saturday's show is a really great one.

Summer's almost here!! No. Really. Despite whatever craziness is happening with the weather, warm sunshine really is making a comeback, and along with it - summer dresses and all good things! Which, in city life, also means the return of food trucks! But what if you could eat a Korean-fusion truck taco while SHOPPING on a truck?? Too good to be true? Or just the brainchild of a visionary? Lucky for us, it's the latter. Emily Benson is owner & operator of The Fashion Truck, a Boston-based mobile boutique filled with unique apparel & accessories. Emily is dedicated to individual attention for customers and designers alike, so she fills her truck with both local and national labels, and personally greets each face that comes through the door. And she's committed to making her fashion affordable, so you can walk out the door with new earrings, necklace, handbag, dress and coat, for under $200! What more could a street style savvy ask for? On today's show, Emily talks shop about her truck shop, some of the unique challenges and rewards of running a small mobile business, some of the Boston area labels she loves, and future plans to (ohyesplease!) bring The Fashion Truck to other cities. Plus, tons of great new music on the show! We've got tracks from supergroup Diamond Rugs, Brooklyn's own Boom Chick, Allo Darlin', Here We Go Magic, and more! So grab your smartphone and warm up that Twitter finger… truck season is back in fashion!
