On today's show, I have a plethora of fall fashion goodies - a conversation with the founder of my new favorite (sustainable) fashion webshop, Modavanti, along with a host of last-minute Halloween ideas for all you procrastinating fashionistas out there! Two years ago, David Dietz left an established career in journalism and Middle Eastern politics to grow a sustainable fashion webshop. Modavanti launched just a year and a half ago, but has already made a significant name for itself as a leader in the small-but-growing market of online sustainable resources (plus, it's one of my personal favorites!) On today's show, you'll hear David talk about the path that took him from covering the Arab Spring to starting Modavanti, the philosophies and principles that guide his ethically oriented shop, and some new developments and future plans that will add to Modavanti's steadily growing base of loyal customers. Plus, a playlist that features the latest from Cass McCombs, Moonface, and Black Hearted Brothers, along with a preview track from next week's Maria Taylor release. All that and more in the hour ahead, so tune in, turn it up, and stay stylish with Sew & Tell on BreakThru Radio!
This week on Sew & Tell, I'm honored to feature an interview with a woman of many talents, Cecilia De Bucourt. She started a modeling career at the tender age of 14 and traveled the world, gracing the pages of top fashion publications like Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, and Elle. At 28, she shifted her focus to behind-the-scenes work, and received a fashion design degree from FIT. While she was still a student, her designs were picked up by Barney's, and she went on to supply top brands like GUESS, Bebe, and Arden B. Cecilia is now focused on developing her eponymous label, which is a favorite of celebs like Heidi Klum, Jessica Simpson, and Paris Hilton. She's also busy creating new photography work, and pursuing her unending passions for dance and design! On today's show, Cecilia will talk about the lessons she learned from working as a model for 14 years, what led her to pursue fashion design, how she gained business savvy before going solo, an upcoming jewelry line, and her pick for favorite iPhone app. Plus, brand new music from the debut album of SoCal's GRMLN, London's Americana folk group Treetop Flyers, the sophomore release from Eleanor Friedberger, and more. So stick around for some serious style on BreakThru Radio!
