Podcast Episode 16 – Corsets, Broadway, and Owning Your Own Costuming Business with Cynthia Settje of RedThreaded

Hi All!

We’re so excited about today’s episode of Fashion History with American Duchess, because we finally got to sit down with Cynthia of RedThreaded to pick her brain about patterning corsets, working for Broadway productions, and starting/running her own business!

Cynthia’s story is one that we both find incredibly inspiring and a testament to how wonderful the costuming community is, women run businesses, and how us ‘wee’ millennials were able to take a terrible situation and make the best of it.

If you are a young person who is getting ready to graduate from school and trying to figure out what to do next, or you’re looking for a career change, want to go into business for yourself, etc., this is a great episode for you!

We hope you enjoy this episode, and we cannot wait to collaborate with Cynthia in the future (hint) – and we’ll be posting our reviews of our Redthreaded Atelier corsets very soon (spoiler: we love them!)
