My New Podcast Series

Have you heard about my collaboration with the National Arts Club, called NAC Chat? On this brand new podcast series I interview experts in various areas of fashion including design, photography, illustration, styling and costume design.

Check out my first two interviews, one with the extraordinary writer Tanisha C. Ford, author of Liberated Threads and one with the charming Rose Callahan and Nathaniel Adams, the photographer and writer of the books I am Dandy and We are Dandy. Speaking of which, I am thrilled to be photographed and profiled in the former title!
