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.

Drawing on use cases, such as the work with adidas, Max Winograd (Vice President, Connected Products, Avery Dennison) shares insights into digital triggers and how they are enabling brands to create more sustainable, resilient and circular supply chains. Opaque supply chains are one of the most systemic issues in the fashion industry, we have the tech to solve this issue but why is adoption not yet solved? Max is responsible for leading Avery Dennison's digital venture, which has built the world's leading connected product cloud, enabling any everyday item to have a unique digital identity. It is already being used by adidas which will tag all of the 1.2 billion products it makes each year. adidas is utilizing the cloud-based platform for circularity and unique consumer-product interactions. It means buyers will be able to sell products back to adidas, giving them a second life. As well as adidas, three of the five largest apparel companies in the world are using it.

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.
