It's Made In America Week on BTR, and in honor of our founding fathers, I have the mother of all shows for you! U.S. production is a hot-button issue in manufacturing across the boards, but particularly in the fashion industry. Domestic garment production has seen a 90% rate of decline over the last 50 years, but a growing number of designers, advocates, and journalists are working to spread the word about the implications of this loss, and reverse the tide. On today's show, I feature clips from interviews with just a handful of these talented, driven individuals, representatives of a new movement to bring fashion production back to the U.S. You'll hear perspectives on production from designers Alice Wu of Feral Childe, Samantha Pleet, Karen Stewart and Howard Brown, Bron Heussenstamm of Alex Maine, Jeff Garner of Prophetik, Peter Kallen of Nau, and Anna Zeman and Aja Singer of Alex & Eli. You'll also hear from Jasmin Malik Chua, Managing Editor of Ecouterre, and Erica Wolf and Anthony Lilore, two representatives from New York's Save The Garment Center, a trade association working to preserve New York City's garment district. All that, plus an American-centric playlist, with tracks from Electric Guest, Little Scream, Middle Brother, and Iron & Wine. So put another hot dog on the grill, and dig that American flag back out of the closet - we're still celebrating the USA here on BTR!
Spotlight on the City! For the month of March, I will feature San Diego, California!
