This week’s guests are the curator’s behind one of this year’s buzziest fashion exhibits, The Museum at FIT’s Global Fashion Capitals. Ariele Elia and Elizabeth Way organized the exhibit around the history of the four best established fashion cities – Paris, New York, Milan and London – and the emergence of sixteen up-and-coming hubs, including Johannesburg, Shanghai, Mumbai, Lagos, Berlin, Mexico City, and Copenhagen. Join us today to hear Ariele and Liz discuss the organization of the exhibit, some of the challenges facing these cities as their fashion industries grow, how technology has and will continue to facilitate the globalization of fashion as industry, art, and commerce, and more.

Plus, a playlist featuring some of my favorite recent tracks from international indie artists, including Iceland’s Lay Low, New Zealand singer-songwriter Liam Finn, and Puerto Rican garage rocker AJ Davila. So come and discover a world of new fashion, here on BTR!
