    S4 EP16: Behind The Velvet Ropes ft. Lauren Ezersky

    S4 EP16: Behind The Velvet Ropes ft. Lauren Ezersky

    Lauren was the host of a show called Behind The Velvet Ropes, interviewing some of the most iconic designers. The episode digresses at point where we talk about my internal crisis (not really anymore though) about having kids, which I also discussed on TikTok. (@TCRFFF) 
    I know this seems unrelated to fashion but I'm so curious to hear from those of you who want kids, have kids, don't want kids and why not? This is not just a question for the women, either! Do you have any regrets? 
    Enjoy,

    S4 EP15: Product Development!! ft. Shilo Byrd

    S4 EP15: Product Development!! ft. Shilo Byrd

    How do you make a product?!!!! This episode highlights my FAVORITE part about fashion: DEVELOPING CLOTHES. I love being in factories. I love working with patternmakers. I love seeing designs come to life. 
    Shilo Byrd is a patternmaker by trade & training. It sounds like we recorded this in a factory, but really, its Downtown Los Angeles on a sunny day in February with the windows wide open, while everyone around us is working at their desk. 
    We talk fast so take notes.
    PERFECT episode  Anyone who wants to understand the "kitchen" of the restaurant we call the fashion industry.

    S4 EP14: Colors and Materials Designer ft. Sarah Barnwell Smith

    What is a "colors and materials" designer? I didn't know exactly either. 
    Sarah works at Puma and started her career at Reebok and New Balance. 
    I hate writing copy because I feel like the episode explains it all!

    S4 EP13: Upcylcing feat. Nicole McLaughlin

    S4 EP13: Upcylcing feat. Nicole McLaughlin

    To understand her work, follow Nicole on Instagram before you even press play! There is no music in this episode because I'm in a weird mood. I really like this girl, she's humble and hardworking and one of the few guests to ever ask me a question back, lol. 
    Nicole started upcycling while working as a graphic designer at Reebok. Her creations are ironic, witty, and clever. Each upcycled product she makes is for visual consumption, yet none of it is for sale. I sit down with Nicole nearly 5 years into her journey. Since starting, she's now done design collaborations with Reebok, Arc'teryx, Patagonia and Hermés and does workshops and consulting work for brands looking to implement sustainable practices. Today, we discuss her evolution into home design and furniture, what creative burn-out feels like, how she became fluent in sign language, and her upcoming wedding.
