With a new year just around the corner, I’m taking this opportunity to look back at 2014 on Sew & Tell. This week’s show is my annual year-end highlight show, featuring just a few of the incredible guests who have contributed to this year’s engaging fashion coverage. You’ll hear clips from my conversations with: Lisa Padovani, costume designer for HBO’s Boardwalk Empire; Gabriel and Sarah Chrisman, a young husband and wife in Seattle who have adopted a “Victorian lifestyle,” complete with historically accurate clothing (including corsets!); Kara Eschbach, co-founder of Verily, a women’s lifestyle publication with a firm no-Photoshop policy; and documentarians Ismail Ferdous and Nathan Fitch, co-founders of Cost of Fashion, who covered the 2013 Rana Plaza factory collapse. It’s a great, but by no means exhaustive, cross-section of guests from 2014, and I hope you’ll also take some time to check out the links to other highlight shows from the past year that I’ve provided on today’s playlist page. I’m also featuring music highlights from the past year - you’ll hear my favorite tracks from my favorite 2014 albums on today’s show. So join me as I look back at a year full of fashion, here on BreakThru Radio…
DJRePete is spinning an all new mix today with the latest from Lia Ices and My Brightest Diamond. Plus, zone out with some beats from the likes of Les Sins, hit up rock alt by Field Mouse, and get into the autumn season with a ballad by Holy Ghost Tent Revival. And don’t miss an instrumentally rich track by Marketa Irglova that’s sure to please. Consider your Wednesday soundtrack solved via DJRePete and BTR!
New, New! Everything is new! Fresh tunes from Slowclub, Marketa Irglova, Summer Camp, Real Estate, and Lia Ices.
There’s binge watching, binge drinking, binge eating, but what about binge shopping? This week on Sew & Tell, I’m joined by former model, fashion editor and author Avis Cardella, who shares her experience with fashion addiction in her 2010 book Spent: Memoirs of a Shopping Addict. On today’s show, Avis talks about the seductive power of fashion magazines and media, how she came to recognize her shopping habits and patterns as addiction, her self-directed road to recovery, how the culture of her new home in Paris has helped her maintain a healthier perspective on fashion, and more. Plus, a playlist chock-full of great new fall releases including sneak previews of the upcoming sophomore LPs from both Czech singer-songwriter Marketa Irglova and Connecticut native, Northern California transplant Lia Ices, as well as more music off “Madman,” next week’s buzzy release from Sean Rowe. All that plus some NYFW chatter and more ahead this hour, so join us as we binge on great radio, with Sew & Tell on BTR!
