The BØRNS Supremacy (a.k.a. The Fashionable Astronaut) - Recording Artist BØRNS

Indie recording artist and fashion darling Garret Borns reveals the genesis of his creative life from Michigan roots and artistic upbringing, how he connected with the fashion world, a dress-up room with secondhand costumes, the importance of Halloween, and how what you wear is what the audience hears. The way BØRNS dresses on stage is the same way he makes music, borrowing vs. creating something original, vintage shops, and the influence of David Bowie in fashion and music. BØRNS considers the possibility of his own fashion line, recalls ripped jeans destruction and redefining couture, and shares why “grandma-wear” is hip. The FashInvest Investment News gets into the relevance of John Galliano’s Paris show tribute to Bowie on catwalk from Ziggy Stardust era and Alladan Sane era, talent crossing with beautiful style and looks, the crossover of music and fashion, and having relevance while pushing boundaries. BØRNS also talks about a guest house that was instrumental in supporting his creative growth. Plus, a round of Feed the Animals brings polka dot napkins and colorful gluten free goodies that open like a CD. The creative collaboration on music videos and wardrobe, how BØRNS connected with fashion industry, how a Gucci shirt on Jimmy Fallon led to creative partnership, spirit animals, fitting aesthetic with brands, astronaut wear, what doors have been opened by connecting with the fashion world, and the nature of performing a fleeting presentation. Why making album relates to building a fashion brand, avoiding losing artistic grip on shaping of artistry to business partners, accepting the reinterpreting of art and lyrics by fans, how wardrobe choices can accentuate a musical experience, the way we consume and present music is changing and why navigating that as an artist parallels the fashion industry due to global reaction to art. The challenge of trying to recreate successful artistic experiences, the need for authenticity, and what a dream show would be like for BØRNS. And, in a lightning round of Off the Grid Questions, BØRNS attempts a magic trick and we learn about his first instrument, jazzy and provocative bubbles baths, and naps. with guest host Julia Macalaster.See for privacy information.

What Do 200 Brands Say About 2021 Retail Trends? - Stephan Schambach of NewStore

Some time ago while we on location at Shoptalk, we invited NewStore CEO Stephan Schambach  onto the show. NewStore is a mobile platform that enables retailers to run their physical stores on an iPhone. Recently on another MouthMedia podcast, Retail is Your Business, Stephen joined Marc Raco and Rebecca Fitts to discuss his new report that assessed nearly 200 brands – while many retailers have done a good job of implementing services during COVID to make the customer experience more convenient and safe, like BOPIS and curbside pickup, online storefronts and physical locations are not truly integrated. Therefore, they have “paper mache” omnichannel capabilities that will soon fail as they aren’t long-term solutions. We thoughts this useful discussion would be of value to our Fashion Is Your Business listeners, so here’s that conversation, right here on FIYB. Enjoy!See for privacy information.

Nicholas De Monchaux – The Fashion Tech of Apollo Spacesuits

Spacesuits as a beacon of fashion technology, with the author of “Fashioning Apollo”. Nicholas De Monchaux , author of “Fashioning Apollo” and Associate Professor of Architecture and Urban Design and Director of the Berkeley Center for New Media, joins Pavan Bahl, Rob Sanchez and Marc Raco at WEAR Conference 2017 in San Francisco.  De Monchaux describes how he conceived the book by considering the craziest domestic space imaginable -- the inside of a spacesuit. He then wrote a book about the Apollo program and how the Apollo spacesuits were made by industrial division of the same company who made Playtex bras and girdles. The origins of Playtex, the genesis of the book ten years in the making, why it mattered, historical understanding of where technological mindset come from, designing a suit allowing the human body to operate in such a hostile environment. And insights from research, as an architect. A discussion of the next frontier for spacesuits, the trip to Mars, how American spacesuits were more practical than originally envisioned, how Russian spacesuits stacked up, dealing with pressure, the many layers of the Apollo spacesuit, radiation concerns, how by understanding technology as a cultural artifact we can understand how to model designs, and need to think about ideas wrapped up in designs and how they affect our work. Innovations that De Monchaux marvels at, high performance fashion, adapting to different circumstances, and how technology has changed how we operate in the w,orld. Our need to upgrade our human systems with technology, how modern technology is taking cues from the body, and augmenting ourselves via a biological view of technology. Off the Grid Questions cover De Monchaux’s earliest memory of fashion made into forts and spaceships, a Star Wars moment and the incorrect use of the word parsec quiet and peace, and getting to meet astronauts because they would visit their suits which were a part of them.See for privacy information.

Garment Designer and Actor (Uncut Gems) Wayne Diamond - Dressing Up

If you’ve seen the Adam Sandler film Uncut Gems on Netflix, you'll remember the unforgettable high-roller who invites Julia Fox up to his casino penthouse suite. That's Wayne Diamond, in his first major film role. But even though Wayne is definitely having a moment, he isn’t new to the spotlight: he’s a bit of a legend in the Garment District, was a hugely successful dress designer in the '70s, '80s and '90s, and even claims to have designed the dresses Vanna White wore on Wheel of Fortune. In this incredibly (but not usually) candid conversation with Wayne, he discusses his unlikely start in the fashion industry, his deep disappointment with it today, his loathing of everything Trump, Wayne's strong input into his Uncut Gems wardrobe, a possible return to fashion,  a meaningful debt he took care of for his father, and an honor he’s never received that might mean more than almost anything. It's very big opinions, very strong language, and a very wild conversation with "the" Wayne Diamond.See for privacy information.

The Adventures of Stitch O'Malley: Fashion Detective - Ep. 1

A few years ago MouthMedia co-founder Rob Sanchez had been building a new kind of concept for an apparel business named Ralph and Remington, offering a novel approach to transparency, including a groundbreaking look behind the scenes as the business was developing. Because the brand was inspired by the ethos of the 1940's, we worked together to create an old-time radio style show reminiscent of that time, which was intended to be one of the unique ways to bring attention to the brand. Although Rob decided to put the project aside for a while to give full attention to MouthMedia, we had already completed three unreleased episodes of the podcast serial. So this week we have decided to pull them out of the vault, dust them off, and share them with you. We know pretty much everyone is going through a tough time now and trying to make the best of the current new realities at home.
