Calling all fashion fans! It’s Multitasking Week here on BTR, and I have got one master multitasker for you on the show today! Marci Zaroff is an unstoppable eco-entrepreneurial force; President of Portico Brand Groups, Marci developed and oversees its subsidiaries Under the Canopy and FASE, two eco-fashion (which, by the way, is a term she coined back in 1996) labels. And as if that weren’t enough, she and her husband Eric are co-creators of I AM Enlightened Creations, an herbal/Ayurvedic supplement line, *and* Marci is currently co-producing a documentary about the environmental impacts of the fashion industry, called “Thread.” With that much to discuss, we’ll be multitasking our way through today’s show! Marci will share about her transition from a career in food to a focus on fashion, the development of her labels Under the Canopy and FASE, the “Thread” documentary and its mission, and a few of her own favorite multitasking wardrobe pieces. Plus, I have a great playlist chock full of recent releases for you, including the latest from British singer-songwriter sensation Anna Calvi, Bay Area garage rockers Thee Oh Sees, folk sister duo Lily & Madeleine, and more. So tune in while you do some holiday shopping, and multitask with sustainable style on BreakThru Radio!

It's January, and if we're being honest, most all of us are feeling the effects of holiday overindulgence. Thank goodness, then, that BTR is taking this week to focus on health! And here on Sew & Tell, I have New York's premier esthetician and skin care guru, Joanna Vargas, to tell us about her latest treatments, products, and tips that will help you acheive a natural, healthy glow, and turn back the clock a bit on your skin. Joanna's ambitions in photography brought her to New York, where she soon discovered a passion for skin care instead. She went on to study with top estheticians world-wide, and soon, Joanna's own technique and product developments placed her in their ranks. A celebrity favorite, Joanna Vargas salon offers multiple non-invasive skincare treatments, as well as a line of natural and organic products. On today's show, Joanna will share the details of her path from photography to facials, some of the mechanics behind her technologically advanced and revolutionary methods, and a few practical tips on how to maintain and protect beautiful skin. Plus, a playlist that features one of the first new indie releases of 2013, the upcoming sophomore album from Nightlands, along with tracks from Norwegian singer-songwriter Sandra Kolstad, Vermont trio Mountain Man, Midnight Juggernauts, Milagres, and more. So turn up the volume, settle back with a couple cucumber slices on your eyes, and get this year started off with your best face forward!
