    An honest conversation about race and fashion: Pass the Mic to Henrietta Gallina & Robin Givhan

    An honest conversation about race and fashion: Pass the Mic to Henrietta Gallina & Robin Givhan

    In the final of three parts, Fashion: No Filter passes the mic to our guest editor Henrietta Gallina as we explore the role of mainstream media in the current climate. 


    In light of the rallying cry for the fashion industry to put an end to ongoing systemic racism, Henrietta, Camille and Monica have been having some tough and candid conversations about the state of play and how they want to participate and show up in this moment. Their conclusion: Fashion: No Filter would share its platform in order to create meaningful dialogue and help foster understanding, learning and shared experiences in the most authentic way. 


    In today’s conversation, Henrietta speaks to trailblazing fashion critic Robin Givhan who is a journalist at The Washington Post. Her work won her the Pulitzer Prize for Criticism in 2006 which is incidentally the first time the award was given to a fashion writer. The Pulitzer Committee cited Robin’s “witty, closely observed essays that transform fashion criticism into cultural criticism”. 


    Henrietta and Robin begin with a birdseye view on the state of the industry today and move on to cover a range of topics. Robin explains why she claims in a recent piece that the fashion system was broken long before the pandemic hit and why it needs a reboot. They also discuss the racial fallout, performative marketing and smoke and mirror optics of advertising and inclusivity, cancel culture vs accountability and the importance of equity and equal representation. Robin who exemplifies the “only one” allegory in many ways, also looks back on her prestigious career and trajectory.


    As in the previous episode, the interview is followed by reactions and takeaways from your hosts Monica and Camille accompanied by Henrietta followed by a quick recap of the genesis of the project.

    An honest conversation about race and fashion: Pass the Mic to Henrietta Gallina & Jordan Mitchell

    An honest conversation about race and fashion: Pass the Mic to Henrietta Gallina & Jordan Mitchell

    In the second of three parts, Fashion: No Filter passes the mic to our guest editor Henrietta Gallina to discuss the role of PR in the current climate. 


    In light of the rallying cry for the fashion industry to put an end to ongoing systemic racism, Henrietta, Camille and Monica have been having some tough and candid conversations about the state of play and how they want to participate and show up in this moment. Their conclusion: Fashion: No Filter would share its platform in order to create meaningful dialogue and help foster understanding, learning and shared experiences in the most authentic way. 


    In today’s conversation, Henrietta speaks to Jordan Mitchell, the Managing Director of talent and brand communications agency LMPR, based in London, who currently represents some of the biggest names in fashion and entertainment.


    Jordan and Henrietta look at the role of PR within the fashion ecosystem, explore the morality behind this often murkier branch of the industry, (given PRs are typically paid to do what brands and clients need and gloss over the mistakes they make), and the need for change within this specific sphere. They also take a closer look at hard-to-spot but extremely prevalent racial micro-aggressions and their potential effects on a black person’s mental health.


    Like in the previous episode, the interview is followed by reactions and takeaways from your hosts Monica and Camille accompanied by Henrietta.

    In this first of three parts, Fashion: No Filter passes the mic to guest editor Henrietta Gallina, an advocate, creative director and co-host of the brilliantly candid podcast The Conversations, who shall be leading the discussion throughout the series.


    In light of the rallying cry for the fashion industry to put an end to ongoing systemic racism, Henrietta, Camille and Monica have been having some tough and candid conversations about the state of play and how they want to participate and show up in this moment. Their conclusion: Fashion: No Filter would share its platform in order to create meaningful dialogue and help foster understanding, learning and shared experiences in the most authentic way. 


    In today’s conversation, Henrietta leads a free-flowing chat with digital creator Tamu McPherson, and BET Style Director Danielle Prescod, both of whom also have strong social media followings and influence. The three speak candidly about their experiences as black female creatives in fashion — Tamu having started out as a freelance photographer, and going on to found her blog All the Pretty Birds, and Danielle as an editor at magazines like Harper’s Bazaar and In Style. 


    While both guests have been outspoken about racism in fashion since the murder of George Floyd, (and before,) this conversation takes many unexpected turns and brings forth new perspectives, interpretations and potential solutions to the industry’s systemic issues going forward. The interview is followed by reactions and takeaways from your hosts Monica, Camille accompanied by Henrietta.

    The New York Times' Elizabeth Paton tells us what the heck is going on

    The New York Times' Elizabeth Paton tells us what the heck is going on

    The show(s) must go on! As lockdowns lift around the world it's time to take fashion’s temperature…. as we enter Paris Menswear and Haute Couture Fashion Weeks… digital Fashion Weeks, that is. Dior is showing in Puglia — but without an audience. Chanel did it’s first digital cruise in Capri … but in Paris… slash on Instagram, and Rick Owens told the New York Times he would definitely also show “how I’m not totally sure [...] but definitely not silence”. So here goes, instead of trying to give you an update on who's showing where and what’s going on when —because who really understands at this point — we have called in the authorities. Fashion No-Filterites we give you New York Times fashion reporter Elizabeth Paton. We talk through some of Elizabeth's most important recent reporting, on topics like luxury’s hidden supply chain, sustainability and racism in the industry and what it's like to be named one of the fashion industry's most influential investigative journalists.
