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

    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.

Stop scrolling. Listen now.

I'm tempted to keep this podcast to myself because it would give me an incredible competitive edge but I can't do it. Absolutely eye-opening, insightful and entertaining for anyone involved or interested in the fashion business from startup to global megabrand from online to retail. But this podcast is so much more than all that. I highly recommend this for any business professional. I find their guests and the host's knowledge invaluable. This is one of those times I suggest not talking, just sit back, listen to the guests and learn, a lot.
