This week’s guests are the curator’s behind one of this year’s buzziest fashion exhibits, The Museum at FIT’s “Global Fashion Capitals.” Ariele Elia and Elizabeth Way organized the exhibit around the history of the four best established fashion cities - Paris, New York, Milan and London - and the emergence of sixteen up-and-coming hubs, including Johannesburg, Shanghai, Mumbai, Lagos, Berlin, Mexico City, and Copenhagen. Join us today to hear Ariele and Liz discuss the organization of the exhibit, some of the challenges facing these cities as their fashion industries grow, how technology has and will continue to facilitate the globalization of fashion as industry, art, and commerce, and more. Plus, a playlist featuring some of my favorite recent tracks from international indie artists, including Iceland’s Lay Low, New Zealand singer-songwriter Liam Finn, and Puerto Rican garage rocker AJ Davila. So come and discover a world of new fashion, here on BTR!

Happy New Year! It’s the first new Sew & Tell of 2015, and I’ve got the perfect accessory to start off your year in style. Mikuti is a jewelry collection launched by Erika Freund in 2009. During time spent in Sub-Saharan Africa, Erika discovered a wealth of incredible resources, both in materials and talent. She was so excited by what she found there that Erika spent four years researching and developing a sustainable way to bring the beauty of Africa to customers around the world. On today’s show, Erika talks about the path that led her from social work to jewelry, the traditional African technique of bead-wrapping, some of the challenges she encountered in establishing an ethical brand in Africa, the collection’s bold aesthetic and its personal significance, the one bright element in her wardrobe (besides her jewelry) that she absolutely loves, and more. Plus, a wonderful winter-y playlist mixing folk and pop, featuring tracks from Lay Low, My Brightest Diamond, Lia Ices, and sister duo Lily & Madeleine. So join us for a fresh stylish start to 2015, right here on BreakThru Radio!
