Been waiting for something like this!
I've been following Shelby on Twitter and I love her content. I've been looking for more resources and advice on black fashion. I like that this platform gives her the opportunity to go in more detail. Can't wait to see how it grows and evolves over time.
Truly A Gem of a Podcast
Ok. I listen to a lot of podcasts and this one by far stands out in not only the fashion community, but the black community. She has given us history of being black in the fashion community and of all things hope. This was for sure something I was waiting for! GOD JOB! 🙌🏾🙌🏾
A good podcast with a lot of potential. The guests thus far have been a great choice. I would recommend the host allowing her guests to complete their thoughts and allowing them to lead the conversations at certain intervals. Sonically it’s a bit unnerving to have so much discussion around one topic once the guest has given their input or are attempting to do so.
