VIDEO: BK Live Featuring BF+DA Production Coordinator Tara St James

BK Live 3/16/15: BK Garment from Brooklyn Independent Media on Vimeo.

Johnathan Plump (Brooklyn Alchemist Station/ Oliver New York) and Tara St. James (production coordinator, at the Brooklyn Fashion + Design Accelerator) talk about the changing dynamic in Brooklyn between manufacturing and design, and the shift in manufacturing from abroad back to domestic.

What does the landscape of emerging design look like in the face of fast fashion vs. slow fashion and how can designers create viable businesses?

Plump and St. James discuss from their own Brooklyn perspectives.
