lena + rena podcast!

lena and rena

this past tuesday i was lucky enough to sit down with both lena corwin and rena tom for special dual d*s podcast. lena was gracious enough to invite us to her (beautiful) home in fort greene to conduct the interview (thanks, lena!). it was extremely exciting for me to get two of my favorite brooklyn artists into one room to talk about their work, the design industry and their dream projects. want to know what lena and rena have in their homes, what lena's new project is and why rena decided to start a shop for independent designers? CLICK HERE to find out and listen to the dual lena and rena podcast! and don't forget to sign up for the d*s newsletter (going out this weekend) for an exclusive 10 minute extended interview with rena and lena. enjoy! [thanks to rena and lena for their time!]

*Fell* across your blog from your parent's Flickr pics & decided to pass thru yours too on their recomendation just wanted you to know the pic "sprout home" has solved a design & storage problem for me. I've made a feather board coral like the one in the pic & am useing it to hang funky shell & summer jewelry on held up with funtac since the dark turquoise tile walls in the bath can't be nailed on it's great So thanks for the inspiration!

thanks amanda!
i was really lost in college about what i wanted to do for a career. i went to school in oregon and then moved out to new york (i'm really meant to live in the city!) and got my first real job as a receptionist and assistant to the designer for a fashion company. and then just worked my way up... when their designer left i started doing his job and worked late to do extra work and prove myself. from there i got jobs in fashion through a temp agency, and was placed at calvin klein- where i was hired full-time and then promoted. i definitely had to work harder to prove myself, not having a design degree... but i think a good portfolio and a lot of drive can often be more important than the degree.
