Calling all aspiring designers!! You guys are gonna be SO excited by this week’s show. What if I told you that there was a new company who would essentially act as your virtual assistant, helping you with every step of design production? A square one for independent designers? Well, I am happy to say that this ingenious company does, in fact, exist, in the form of The Ignited.

The Ignited is a web-based design service, helping independent designers through each part of the production process, from sourcing to sample making to manufacturing. Once a garment is made, The Ignited offers designers a brilliant Kickstarter-like model to raise the necessary backing for a specific garment to go into production. On today’s show, I’m joined by The Ignited Design Director Ellena Doe, who will talk about the development of this new fashion business model, their step-by-step production process, the logistical solutions the team has found that make this web-based alternative a smooth process, and more.

Plus, a great mix of music with brand new Neko Case, more of the gorgeous new Volcano Choir album, and, on the heels of a rock- & punk-heavy fashion week, a set dedicated to garage punk. Fall is the season for new beginnings, so get back in the design game with Sew & Tell on BTR!
