MacTaggart brings in help to talk about clothing and fashion!
You knew we’d get here eventually - dressing for success! But, as all things, we prefer to put our own unique spin on the topic. This week, fashion designer Kiya Tomlin stops by the Epicast Studios to talk to Scot MacTaggart about her Uptown line (uptownsweats.com), which clothing rules are changing, and which ones shouldn’t.
Kiya hopes to make Uptown a household name, indispensable to modern women, and available in department stores. In the second half of the show, she and Scot discuss how those goals might be broken into smaller ones - and develop two or three ideas as takeaways.
