We are four fashion industry veterans embarking on our second decade in fashion. We've seen it all! We are the Priority Standing, we are people of color, and we'd like for you to have a seat at the table. Join us, Nicole, J Rod, Tiffany and Jennifer as we talk about the past, the future and everything in between when it comes to fashion.
Season 2, Episode 3: And The Winner Is...
It was the end of awards season with the Oscars this past week, and we're ready to put in our pre-orders for Maison Valentino mid-riff baring numbers because they were hot. Hot Couture!! This week our live from the red carpet (our living rooms) coverage has no shortage of opinions. From Carey Mulligan to Zendaya to Daniel Kaluuya , we're always here for the fashuuuuns. We also bid farewell to two legends we've lost, DMX and Alber Elbaz. Life is short, y'all. Live in the moment!
Season 2, Episode 2: Cash Me Outside, BOOTH!
It is not the sole responsibility of Black stylists and Black talent to support Black designers!!!! And thank you, Jason Bolden and Law Roach, for stating the facts. This week we take a minute to discuss a certain WWD article that has us HEATED. But first, let's start with the positive. Whether it was on the actual red carpet or a shaky Zoom connection, celebs like Cynthia Erivo and Anya Taylor-Joy brought some much needed glamorous fashuuuuns to this year's Golden Globes. However, between the HFPA having zero Black members and a severe lack of diversity with the nominees, Hollywood still has a long way to go. And so does fashion for that matter.
Season 2, Episode 1: No. Really. We Did it, Joe!!!!
Well, we made it to 2021. And...We did it, Joe!!!! We promise we did!!!! For our Season 2 premiere, we're discussing the resplendent fashion looks we were blessed with on a very historic Inauguration Day. We saw major moments for Black designers and American designers as the sun came out for the dawn of a new day. From Kamala Harris wearing Christopher John Rogers to Michelle Obama making THE entrance in Sergio Hudson, optimism ruled the day when it came to fashion. In fact, Jen will never get over Michelle Obama's epic entrance in her Sergio Hudson trouser look. For J rod it was the youth and freshness of the Biden granddaughters in their monochromatic looks. Nicole confirms she's the president of the Miuccia Prada fan club, and Amanda Gorman and Ella Emhoff did her proud. Tiff is feeling the Bern, and she'll need to get on a Birkin-level waiting list for those mittens. Bring it on 2021.
Episode 8: Plus One, Paul Cavaco
This week on Priority Standing, we begin our new guest series, "Plus One," with the one and only, legendary editor, Paul Cavaco. We discuss the making of a fashion editor, the transition from models to celebrities on the covers of magazines, Paul's favorite supermodels and of course, his behind the scenes stories from the Oprah Vogue cover shoot and the making of Madonna's Sex book. And no matter where we've journeyed in our careers, Paul will always be our Fashion Dad.
Episode 7: Blue, White and Who?
Shirley. Angela. Michelle. Kamala. Stacey. On this week’s episode, we celebrate our true winners of this week: Black women. And with politics, comes the inevitable subject of fashion. In order to form a more perfect union, it’s important to explore the relationship between the two and how closely they go hand in hand. For women in politics, and especially women of color in politics, navigating the criticism in regards to their sartorial choices is not an easy feat. However, there are still plenty of euphoric moments we can get excited about. So even though Election Day felt like Election Eternity, I think we can all agree it was well worth the wait.
Episode 6: Cloooooothes!!!!
What's our seat assignment? It's section and row H-O-M-E for us. And that means front row for everything and everyone! This week we review our favorite Spring/Summer 2021 looks from Fashion Month. Yes, the industry still managed to produce a month full of digital shows and real life shows. If you attended the shows in person, we hope you wore a mask and sat at least six feet apart from everyone. If you watched from home like us, we hope your digital experience was glitch-free without any 90s-era-dial-up buffering moments. From new designer collaborations at major fashion houses, to the importance of jeans on the runway, brands still managed to (October?) surprise.
A peek behind the curtains!
