The business start-up scene here in Lansing is about to get another boost. A business incubator for fashion designers called The Runway is expected to open in February in the historic former Knapp’s department store building downtown. The project will house up to 12 designers in residence and a retail store, and will work to retain and cultivate design talent here in mid-Michigan.

Current State’s Mark Bashore talks with Jeff Henry,  the incubator’s operations manager and Lansing fashion designer Rebecca Clark.
