In keeping with BTR's Tour Week, I have a guest on today's Sew & Tell who will help you stay stylish (and organized) on the road. Noah Guy is the founder & designer behind the U.S.-made, San Francisco-based line Joshu + Vela. Joshu + Vela embodies all the any travel bag should be, in a myriad of sizes and purposes: from weekender to wallet, Noah's designs have you covered in conscientious, practical style. On today's show, you'll hear what Noah learned about construction while working for Levi's, the meant-to-be resurrection story of Joshu + Vela, the challenges and rewards of Noah's commitment to make his product in the USA, from U.S.-sourced materials, and the beautifully dynamic quality of the leather Noah uses to create Joshu + Vela bags. I've also got some great music on the show from artists like Dawes, Lia Ices, and Jenny Wilson, along with brand new tracks from Deer Tick, Golden Suits, and Julia Holter - PLUS travel style & packing tips in today's Odds & Ends!! So much good stuff on the show today - just tune in, turn it up, and let BTR get you ready for your next vacay (before summer ends… shhhhh!!)
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!
Your BTR Wednesday mix starts with a balance of fresh and what we like to call ‘ole reliable’---some choice throwbacks in the form of alternative with Ra Ra Riot, folk via Zoe Boekbinder, and a set with a beat including Collective Efforts. Also, tune in for brand new music from Veronica Falls, Miracles of Modern Science, and Lusine. And hit up info on next week’s part 1 of 2 SXSW preview shows! DJRePete gets your day started on BTR Wednesday!
