A Sneak Peak into Creatives’ Minds

This podcast always puts a smile on my face and dives deep into different creatives’ lives, their process and what inspires them. Bronwyn asks the questions you never knew you had; twisting a ‘what’s your creative process’ into ‘if I were your client, take me through the journey’, for instance. You always learn so much and hear great anecdotes, whether from the guest or Bronwyn’s amazing experience in fashion and the arts.

A Different Tweed

What a fantastic listen. I knew about A Different Tweed for quite some time but never had the time to discover it. In the past few days I have devoured almost all of it! What a treasure! ADT became my quarantine cure. Bronwyn puts so much research into her subjects and that shows. I love how she puts them at ease and conversation just flows. Bronwyn’s pod casts are as fabulous as fashion it self! Can’t wait for the next one. Thank you Bronwyn!
