The American Fashion Podcast

The American Fashion Podcast (AFP), which broadcasts from the Fashion Media Center of Manufacture New York (MNY), recently celebrated its 30th episode.  The weekly, hour-long program, which brings together some of the leading voices in America’s resurgent apparel industry, has already racked up 37,000 downloads, with recent episodes debuting to an average of 1,400 regular listeners.

Fashion Media Center director Charles Beckwith says the podcast has steadily gained traction thanks to a slightly irreverent take on domestic fashion and design (best summed up by the show’s tagline “Local, sustainable, irritable.”)  Beckwith, along with co-hosts Seth Friedermann and Lisa-Maria Radano, have tackled everything from e-tailing and crowdfunding to “bad fashion” and streetwear.  Beckwith believes that the group’s emphasis on domestic apparel has found a particular niche with younger enthusiasts who have been encouraged by the Made-in-America fashion comeback springing up in Brooklyn’s Sunset Park.     
  
Featured guests have included Karolyn Pho, Katya Leonovich, Gretchen Harnick, and Abigail Stewart.  Beckwith says the most popular episode to date featured an interview with Lisa Padovani, the costume designer for ‘Boardwalk Empire’ and ‘Gotham,’ that has racked up more than 8,000 downloads.

Beckwith believes AFP’s audience will continue to grow as the show embraces more discussions of emerging designers, sustainable manufacturing, wearable technology, America’s lengthy garment-making tradition, and new business models for online fashion. 

He adds, “The success of the American Fashion Podcast is confirmation that there is a large and enthusiastic audience for local, sustainable fashion.  We’re excited to keep creating these podcasts as an ongoing archive of the latest breakthroughs in domestic fashion.”

The podcasts are free to download on iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/american-fashion-podcast/id887026695, as well as other platforms via http://fashionmediacenter.com/
