Clothing as Communication

Listen Now

Over the years, Heidi Olinger, of Fort Collins, has noticed some disturbing messages on clothing for girls. A recent one said, "I'm too pretty to do my homework so my brother does it for me." So, Olinger started the company Pretty Brainy, to create girls' fashion that sends a better message. Pretty Brainy's latest venture is to bring material to schools and community groups so that kids can make their own clothing. Olinger spoke with CPR's Ryan Warner.
