The Seams with Jacki Lyden
I was thrilled to be included in The Seams' Mother's Day podcast, but even if I hadn't been on it, I would have listened to it, The Seams is a great concept, and the brilliant Jacki Lyden is the perfect person to execute it. Her work is deeply layered, and while fashion can seem all surface, Lyden indulges in the fun and frivolity, while at the same time providing cultural history and human stories. She is the ultimate "seamstress."
Seamingly endless charm
Don’t care about fashion? Doesn’t matter! Jacki cares enough for the both of you. I think there’s something very special about a talented, charming person like Jacki getting to finally do what she’s always wanted to do. Her joy is contagious, as is her fascination with a ubiquitous aspect of culture that people (like me) too easily dismiss.
