It’s Throwback Week on the station, and no one does vintage style better than the late, great Mad Men. In honor of the series finale, I’’m joined by BTR’s DJ Dane, co-host of The Hash and resident food behind Dish + Drink. Together, we dissect the finer points of the finale and the impeccable fashion on the show, and I share my close encounter with the lovely Christina Hendricks (!!) And there’s a slew of great Mad Men fan resources on today’s playlist page - scroll down for quizzes, blogs, articles and more! Plus, I have a fun playlist featuring some of today’s best vintage-inspired indie artists - you’ll hear tracks from Cali duo Best Coast, Brooklyn’s own soul singer Charles Bradley, Argentinian trio Capsula, and funky experimental psych outfit Foxygen. So celebrate some “old fashioned” style with us, here on BTR’s Sew & Tell!
As is mentioned in probably every cocktail blog on the internet, the Old Fashioned is argued to be the first cocktail in existence. It has made a huge resurgence in the last several years and many will attribute this trend to the popularity of 'Mad Men.'
What if you could wear your favorite yoga pants to work, and still look beautifully polished, professional, and commanding? That’s exactly what Lisa Sun, founder and CEO of Project Gravitas, has set out to do with her new line of women’s wear. Not only are Project Gravitas pieces comfortable and well-constructed classics, the designs are created with a variety of body shapes and sizes in mind. (Imagine that! A line of clothes for women, actually *designed* for more than one woman!) Project Gravitas is just two years old, but in that time, the label has been featured in top fashion publications including InStyle, Marie Claire, Elle, and Women’s Wear Daily, and has made multiple appearances in the O Magazine, after being selected as one of Oprah’s favorite things. An impressive resume, to say the least! Join us for a wonderfully inspiring, engaging talk with Lisa Sun, as she shares about the moment that ultimately led her to launch a new fashion label, what makes Project Gravitas designs unique, and some of the brand’s exciting new projects ahead! And to go along with this empowering style, I’ve got a playlist full of empowering indie women. You’ll tracks in today’s mix from Neko Case, Sharon Van Etten, Beach House, Sylvan Esso, and Lia Ices. So join us for a Friday fashion happy hour and enjoy a shot of confidence, with Project Gravitas on BTR’s Sew & Tell!
In honor of the upcoming premiere of the series finale of 'Mad Men', the Museum of the Moving Image--nestled in the cozy NYC neighborhood of Astoria, Queens--installed an exhibit dedicated to the show. The exhibit focuses primarily on the attention to detail that goes into creating such a renowned series; its last season is set to air on Apr 5.
