The COUTURE Podcast with Buddha Mama
While it’s now instantly recognizable for its exquisite gemstone, enamel, diamond and high-karat gold jewelry, Buddha Mama had humble beginning at the kitchen table of its founder, Nancy Badia, who decided to string beads in order to raise money for her Buddhist center. In our most recent COUTURE podcast, Nancy and her daughter and co-designer, Dakota, share with us the gradual evolution of their brand, their creative process and their nostalgia for non-stop travel and hole-in-the-wall bars.
The COUTURE Podcast with Stephen Webster
For designer Stephen Webster, a normal routine is the absence of routine. He’s perpetually jet-setting across the globe to visit clients and make personal appearances, but when COVID hit, Stephen found himself grounded at home in England. We caught up with Stephen, remotely, to hear about some of his adventures in quarantine, and we also reflected on some of his past experiences, his drive to give back and his dedication to creating a sustainable brand.
The COUTURE Podcast with Jeff Feero
Managing partner of Alex Sepkus, Jeff Feero, loves a challenge! Several weeks into sheltering in place, Jeff started thinking about how he could keep in touch with clients while possibly making some sales along the way. In May, Jeff purchased a vintage camper van and got behind the wheel to embark on the first of many long-haul trips to visit stores across the country. We were thrilled to sit down with Jeff over a campsite fire at his blueberry farm to hear about his many adventures from the road.
