As an up-and-comer in Atlantaâ€™s fashion scene, Emily Lipman ofÂ “The New Atlanta” is a boutique owner who values her independence. She sits with UPTOWN to discuss cast drama, her ambitions, and the personal loss that changed her perspective on life â€¦
UPTOWN:Â How did you become a cast member of
“The New Atlanta”?
Emily:Â Itâ€™s actually a funny story! Atlanta is an extremely big city, but itâ€™s actually like a really small town, and when you own a business in a small town people get to know you. I was featured in Jezebel [magazine] as one of the â€œ50 Most Beautiful of Atlantans 2011â€ and that put me out there.
UPTOWN:Â You own a fashion boutique right?
Emily:Â Yes! Itâ€™s called Raw Denim.
UPTOWN:Â Are you originally from Atlanta?
Emily:Â I am â€¦ born and raised!
