Marni's Spring 2022 Ready to Wear collection is a stand out. Lots of stripes on the runway (the guests who were styled by Marni were styled in stripes too), wonky flowers, angular cut outs & nods to an era of 90's punk that maybe never actually existed? The show itself was immersive, the attendees were arranged into the program of the show. This NYT article linked here provides a glimpse into the intention of & experience with the show.

Only one podcast highlighted this month & that's because it's that great. Tori Telfer is the host of the podcast & she quickly became one of my favorite storytellers that I listen to. I went through all 74 episodes in 10 days. These stories are important & fascinating. It's part entertainment, part education. By listening to this series I started to question my beliefs around violence, particularly women who are violent. I found myself dreaming of solutions for our flawed incarceration system. I found parts of myself in some of these women & I am taking the chance that you will too.
