Sidewalk Radio’s “The Fashion Show” airs Today September 24, 2012Posted by SCAD Fashion Department in : Design Resources , trackback
What is Atlanta’s style? In a word, versatile. In a genre, southern. Our friends and neighbors rock khaki, clubwear, hoodies, gingham, seersucker, sundresses, navy blazers, roper boots, jeans and “t’s”, and even couture. This diversity is not totally surprising, we are a bustling metropolis after all. What is surprising is the skyrocketing popularity of our style over the past few years. From the streets (and runways) of New York, to cooking it up on cable like Top Chef’s Hugh Acheson, from gracing the stage at the Grammy’s, to winning wardrobes in Hollywood, the South is hot. We’ve even got the world’s most desired undergarments coming out of Atlanta thanks to Sidewalk Radio friend, Sara Blakely and Spanx. But, it hasn’t always been this way. We’re joined by some of Atlanta’s favorite friends and faces in fashion to explore where we came from and why we’re now getting this major attention on the national stage. Hold on to your hats, y’all, it’s “The Fashion Show”, southern style.
Guests include: Sid Mashburn, Amy Flurry, Cynthia Crowder, and the great guys from Friedman’s Fine Shoes.
