    Nick Knight

    Nick Knight

    The photographer discusses his collaborations, from Kanye West to Alexander McQueen and John Galliano as well as his ambivalence towards the fashion industry, why he believes technology can be a positive factor in pushing humankind forward; how he has fought throughout his career against people who live in the past and why he’s all for the democratisation of photography. He also talks about his work, from the origins of his 1980s book Skinhead, to how he achieved the dynamic effects in the Christian Dior ads, to his present-day passion for photographing flowers.

    Venetia Scott

    Venetia Scott

    The fashion photographer and stylist sits down with Danielle Radojcin to discuss her career, beginning at British Vogue in the 1980s with Grace Coddington. Scott talks about her childhood, including her dislike of authority and her experience of boarding school. She reminisces about being a part of the 1990s grunge moment alongside Juergen Teller and Corinne Day and what it was like going to a Martin Margiela show in Paris. By contrast, Scott talks about how she feels disillusioned with what she considers a lack of creativity in styling today and explains how she meets most of the models she works with as well as how she creates a slower pace on her fashion shoots.

    Anya Hindmarch

    Anya Hindmarch

    Since she launched her luxury accessories label over 30 years ago, the Anya Hindmarch brand has grown to become one of the most established names in British luxury, with a focus on craftsmanship and bespoke detailing that take the products above and beyond the ever-changing winds of fashion. Danielle Radojcin visits Anya at her brand headquarters in south London to talk about what true luxury means today and how her company is moving with the times. She also discusses her recent impromptu ‘wedding’ in Las Vegas, her dinner parties for her favourite women and how she handles an overload of tech in her life.

    Margherita Missoni

    Margherita Missoni

    Margherita Missoni talks to host Danielle Radojcin about her family, life and career. The granddaughter of the founders of Missoni and the daughter of its creative director, she spent time languishing as a homesick actor in New York and enjoyed being in the spotlight as a celebrated 'It' girl, before eventually returning to Italy to answer her calling as creative director of the brand’s sister label, M Missoni. She discusses how her grandmother has influenced her, taking her to museums and jewellery shopping; how she outgrew the 'It' girl tag; the trauma over the death of a family member; her admiration for her mother and how and why she decided to do things differently. She also talks about how motherhood has changed her sense of style and her ambitions for M Missoni and turning it into an environmentally sustainable label.

Interesting listen on a range of arts subjects

I discovered this Collectors House series of podcasts on a BA flight to Moscow this summer as part of their inflight entertainment.
I passed the time enjoyably hearing the life story of the designer/stylist Lucinda Chambers and the chef/patron Skye Gyngell.

Now I've signed up to listen to many more on my phone. Today Faith Ringgold before I see her show at the Serpentine Gallery. Much else to catch up on Richard Wentworth, the sculptor and artist and much more.
A hidden treasure trove which needs publicising more. The main interviewer is terrific.
