As an up-and-comer in Atlanta’s fashion scene, Emily Lipman of “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 …
UPTOWN: How did you become a cast member of “The New Atlanta”?
Emily: It’s actually a funny story! Atlanta is an extremely big city, but it’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 “50 Most Beautiful of Atlantans 2011” and that put me out there.
UPTOWN: You own a fashion boutique right?
Emily: Yes! It’s called Raw Denim.
UPTOWN: Are you originally from Atlanta?
Emily: I am … born and raised!
