Williamsburg
The 4th Annual Sweet Sugar Festival in Williamsburg Brooklyn.
Beyond Veronica Mars, Zach Braff, and Spike Lee, Kickstarter already has films to intrigue and satisfy cinephiles.
When you hear the phrase "plastic dress," chances are, at least for fans of the uber-popular fashion phenom TV show "Girls" on HBO, you think of character Marnie's wave-making dress from Season 2. This week's guest needs no further introduction - I had the amazing opportunity to chat with Jenn Rogien, costume designer and style mastermind behind the youthful Brooklyn styles. (Incidentally, Jenn made the infamous plastic dress herself!) Join us on Sew & Tell to hear Jenn talk about her path from chemical engineering to fashion, the work of a costume designer, the boys of "Girls," a new Netflix series she just designed, her weakness for British costume dramas, and more. Plus, a playlist full of "Girls" soundtrack-inspired songs, including Oh Land, Generationals, fun., and Lia Ices. So break out your sleeping bag coat and best fascinator, and join us for an hour of "Girl"-y fashion here on BTR!
The Brooklyn-based artisanal flea market is back.
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!
