It’s Debt Week here on BTR, and while debt is often something to avoid, every now and then it can be a good thing: we can, for example, owe a debt of gratitude to someone who helped us out along the way. This week’s Sew & Tell guests will stand to collect a lot of gratitude in future years - Rosa Thurnher and Regina Weir are founders of Factory Girls, a new fashion incubator in downtown Atlanta that’s working to support the local industry and burgeoning new talent. From studio space to production connections, mentoring relationships to educational resources, Factory Girls offers Atlanta’s design community a wealth of resources that give independent designers the boost they need to get their labels off the ground and into stores. On today’s show, you’ll hear from Regina and Rosa about the evident needs that sparked their concept for Factory Girls, the specific ways in which they support and bolster Atlanta’s independent design community, how they’re able to serve as mentors to Factory Girls’ Designers in Residence, some of the highlights of Atlanta’s contemporary fashion scene, and more. Plus, a playlist with exciting new releases from Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Toronto’s The Rural Alberta Advantage, D.C. punk band Ex Hex, and pop/psych/funk duo Foxygen. So join us today as we learn what it takes to turn a city’s fashion industry into a central creative community, right here on BTR.
