Entertaining and enlightening

I used to think fashion was stupid, wasteful, and supercilious. Not since listening to this! Now I see it as a lens for viewing the entire culture, plus having a lot to do with women’s culture and the history of women, if that makes sense. Love it.

On “aggrievedness” - maybe I’m a member of an aggrieved class, but I very, very much value and appreciate and am fascinated by their podcasts that deal with fashion leaders who were also enslaved people, their interviews and discussions with and about fashion leaders in the African-American community, interviews with eco-conscious fashion types. It makes me feel good and fills in missing history and raises interesting points to consider, as well as being every bit as upbeat, entertaining, and about fashion as anything else they do.

Best Fashion podcast!

Fashion history was my favorite subject in college. This is like studying all over again only with your best friends. Thank you ladies for feeding my obsession with fashion & history.❤️
