Give it a listen!

Great guests, interesting topics, and perfect for someone like myself interested in the future of the fashion industry.

Silenced ;) ,

If you are in any way interested in Fashion, listen to this podcast

This podcast is real fashion. Fashion is all about image, but there is reality behind it - if you want to be knowledgdable about the genre, you must listen. Not just designers, but retailers and merchandisers and wholesalers and illiustrators and producers and photographers and models and stylists and fashion instagramers and fashion bloggers and pattern drafters and manufacturers and yes even consumers. Listen.

Okay, host needs improvement

Guests are usually interesting, the host comes across has having little to no personality and an accusatory style of interviewing. He seems like he is out to pick on people and highlight their fallacies when possible. There is a better, more productive way to question. Can be hard to listen to, too negative.
