Lounging around has been taking up most of our days. Procrastinating on classwork, binging Netflix, attempting to start new hobbies, baking banana bread…need I go on? Recently, I’ve added another activity to this list: podcasts!
Usually, I’m only a big podcast-listener when I’m traveling, as I find that they pass the time. This makes them perfect for chilling at home. Put one on while you’re cooking, scrolling through your phone, or taking a walk. While there are podcasts on just about any subject you can think of, here are some narrowed down to the fashion field that will allow you to stay updated and educated about what’s happening in the fashion world right now, whether it’s history, interviews, or art. I’ve linked the podcasts in the headings for easy access. Happy listening!
The BoF is a global force in following, well, fashion business. Recent episodes include what it’s like to be a designer in a pandemic, why social distancing is a privilege, and reviews of various artists’ fashion careers.
In March, Dior launched “Dior Talks,” a podcast in which host Katy Hessel speaks to feminist artists about their work and lives.
Mason Margiela launched this podcast, hosted by John Galliano, in which he beautifully narrates Margiela’s collections.
Hosted by Recho Omondi, this podcast takes a more casual approach to the fashion industry and provides a socio-political perspective on the industry.
This podcast gives a historical perspective on fashion, from examining Game of Thrones costumes to the history of fishnets.
