On this week’s fashion feature, I’m joined by Naomi Clark and Nana Spears, two of the imaginative forces behind Brooklyn-based design and art collective Fort Makers. In addition to art pieces, installations, and furniture, Fort Makers has developed a beautiful fashion label centered around hand-painted pieces. The original designs blend fine art and fashion in strikingly unique garments, and it’s no surprise that they recently finished a collaboration line for Anthropologie. On today’s show, Nana and Naomi will talk about how they formed Fort Makers, Naomi’s process for painting silk, some new accessory designs, and the artists and designers that inspire their work.
Plus, new music from former Velvet Underground-er John Cale, as well as side-by-side releases from Dandy Warhol drummer Brent Deboer, who is out with both a new solo effort as well as the debut album from his Australian-based project Immigrant Union. And some info on the upcoming BTR CMJ showcases happening this week – we’ve got a ton of hot music to keep you warm as the weather cools. So tune in and stay toasty with fall fashion & music on BreakThru Radio!
