    S3 E4: Martine Rose

    S3 E4: Martine Rose

    In Episode 4 of the i-Dentity podcast, we’re joined by fashion designer and subculture connoisseur Martine Rose, known around the world for her distinctly London vision. 
    Martine discusses her extraordinary career, unconventional upbringing in South London, and why subculture and nightlife will always be a focus of her work. “The feeling that I get on the dance floor hasn't changed. It's completely electrifying. I still feel like a 14-year-old standing outside of Strawberry Sundae. It genuinely feels like that.”

    S3 E3: James 'Jeanette' Main

    S3 E3: James 'Jeanette' Main

    This week, we’re back with none other than James ‘Jeanette’ Main, the former Boombox host and East London nightlife legend. In the mid-2000s, he became the so-called ‘door girl’ for Richard Mortimer’s Sunday evening club night Boombox, known by the moniker of ‘Jeanette’. One of a handful of nights in the East End, it sparked a renaissance in queer London nightlife and marked a shift in the city’s creative centre, playing host to fashion designers, musicians, artists, art students — and indeed the occasional icon — who all had to pass Jeanette to get to the dancefloor.
    As he puts it: “Subculture is doing what you can’t help not do, doing what is burning inside you, and finding others who have the same burning desire as you.”

Great podcast!

Interesting podcast

Enjoyable and relaxing podcast to listen to. Very in tune and topical content wise. It’s a very interesting concept to me for a publication to have a podcast because now we can observe editors in conversation with one another and I think it demonstrates the differing opinion and critiques regarding the collections and designers that you can’t really see in magazines anymore.
