Spring 2013
What's better than the semi-smug satisfaction of discovering a new, emerging talent in design? Pretty much nothing. Let's be honest: we all love being the first to know. This week's guest is here to help you build a wardrobe full of trend-bucking, uniquely artful pieces that will make your friends crazy with jealousy. Briana Swords and her husband Ryan Smith are co-founders of Brooklyn's hottest new boutique, Swords-Smith, located in Williamsburg and stocked with some of the best in today's indie fashion, from Feral Childe to K/LLER Collection, Dessu to Thorocraft. On today's show, Briana will talk about her mission to support independent labels, the development of their own in house Swords-Smith line, future plans for the retail space, and more. Plus, Dane joins me to talk about our picks for best and worst spring trends! Also in the mix are samples off the latest records from Cold War Kids, Generationals, John Grant, Born Ruffians, and more. Fashion fans, get ready for all the latest & greatest here on BreakThru Radio!
Spring is approaching fast, and we all know what's just around the corner: bikini weather! If you think it's too early to start prepping your beach bod, think again - it's never the wrong time to hit the gym! And thanks to this week's Sew & Tell guest, you don't have to sacrifice style OR comfort when you do. Dari and her sister Pamela Passarello are long-time passionate runners who happened upon the perfect solution to an age-old problem: how to find a comfortable headband. After fruitless searching, Dari finally made her own, and suddenly found that everyone else wanted one, too! Sparkly Soul Headbands was born, and they now offer a variety of styles and colors, so you can transition easily from workout to work to play, and look effortlessly fabulous the whole time. On today's show, Dari will talk about how Sparkly Soul began, some of the perfect occasions and uses for the headbands, a few new styles in the works, and she even offers some great advice for beginning runners! Plus, another week of fantastic new releases - you'll hear tracks from Gainesville's ASPE, UK's Veronica Falls, the debut from hardcore rockers The Virginmarys, Miracles of Modern Science, a special Jamie Lidell Valentine's single, and more. So tune in, turn it up, and get inspired - spring is just around the corner here on Sew & Tell!
