Lily Gatins: “Wearing black is my second skin”

Our first episode of Hybrid Atlanta, an interview show with local artists and creatives whose work establishes a dialogue with LatinX and global cultures, features fashion artist Lily Gatins. Based in Atlanta and born in the Dominican Republic, she developed a career in the fashion industry in New York. She speaks about being skinny in the voluptuous Caribbean, the Latin American fashion scene, her all-black esthetic, and her relationship with the late Bill Cunningham, the famous street photographer from the New York Times.

Created by Paul Alonso, Hybrid Atlanta is produced by Polivision, a multimedia and bilingual outlet based in Atlanta.
