It’s (almost) spring!! While we are technically still one week out according to the calendar, the snow has started to thaw, grass is showing, and the sun is shining, so we here at BTR are celebrating! And what better way to ring in the spring than with some beautiful, beachy fashion? Brooke Goldman launched her line DISTRICT Collection three years ago, and in that short time, her label has grown to be synonymous with flirtatious, fashion-forward styles that are incredibly versatile. It’s no wonder that Blake Lively is counted amongst Brooke’s fan base - Brooke’s designs offer effortless elegance. On today’s show, Brooke will talk about discovering her fashion path while majoring in anthropology, the insights she gained while working in buying and merchandising that helped her build a successful brand, the DISTRICT aesthetic, her textile-driven creative process, and more. Plus, I’ve got new material in the mix today from Canadian musician Travis Bretzer, Brooklyn band Grooms, Virginia musician/producer Matthew E. White, and a track off the debut from a new project, Young Guv. All that’s coming up this hour, so ignore the fact that it’s only 40 degrees: put on your sandals and join us as we celebrate spring style in full bloom, with Sew & Tell on BTR!
Join me this week for a conversation with Jenny Wu, an architect with Oyler Wu Collaborative and designer behind a new line of jewelry called LACE. Jenny’s beautifully intricate necklaces, earrings and rings have incredible drama and delicacy, and are created entirely through the process of 3-D printing. On today’s show, Jenny talks about the shared aesthetic and approach to design between her architecture and LACE pieces, the innovation 3-D print technologies are bringing to every field and industry, the materials and process she uses to create LACE, and more. Plus, a playlist packed with great tunes including a new single off the upcoming Will Butler solo debut, the latest from NYC’s electronic artist/producer Michna, a song off the debut from psych/electronic artist Jib Kidder, and brand new Toro Y Moi. So join us for Sew & Tell as we peer ahead into the future of fashion from 3-D printing, here on BreakThru Radio!
