Episode 84: Experiential Stores

Hello Hag hunnies!

Ever been to a store to buy a thing and all they had at the store was just things to buy? Just go in, get it, and leave? Well that kind of transaction isn’t enough for some brands, especially big ones, who want you to have a whole experience while at the store — maybe get a beer and draw a picture, see a DJ do a set, skate on a skateboard. In this episode, we chit chat about the new retail trend of experiential stores. Is it a coincidence that they are coming along at a time when traditional retail is dying and online shopping is easier and more popular than ever? We think not.

Listen in and experience, yes?

Episode 83: Line Reviews and the Met Gala Recap

Lots to cover this week, Hags! We can’t not talk about the Met gala and all the hits and misses (there were a few) but the real deal is a kiki about line reviews. A line review is basically an internal show for buyers and other members of the production team by the designers for a specific season. Have no idea what any of that means? Better listen in and learn all about it.

Episode 82: Getting Ready for the MET Gala 2019 Notes On Camp

It’s just about time for the annual MET Gala and we are ready to dish. This year’s theme is Camp: Notes on Fashion, based on Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay Notes on Camp (which can and should be read here). It is such a fun theme that is almost impossible to get wrong, although we are pretty sure there will be people that will, which is one of the reasons we are excited to see it all unfold. Plus, we swoon over Beyonce’s Homecoming and the usual nonsense. Put on a pink feathered gown and come join!

Episode 81: Fashion School Reflections

It’s always fun to look back at school and talk about the good times, the bad times, the stress, the rewards, the blood, sweat, and tears, and how we could all do so much better now with the gift of hindsight. Well, take out  your rear-view mirrors, Hags, because that is exactly what we are doing this episode.

Episode 80: Fashion Academia With Kat Sark

We are thrilled to have academic researcher, blogger, author, networker, lecturer and generally delightful lady Kat Sark join us on this episode! She walks us through fashion networking, the wide world of academia and where fashion fits into it, her city-based fashion history books, impacts of colonialism on fashion and culture, and also starts up a few good giggles. Get ready for some great stories, stuff you never knew before, big words that sound impressive, and of course, obsessions.

Karl Lagerfeld is a name even non-fashion-y people can recognize, and now that he’s gone, what will fashion look like? His contributions to fashion are unmatched but there are definitely things are are not going to miss. Listen to the tea spilling, Hags!
(also keep your ears peeled for a secret message from Margot…)

Episode 78: Fashion As Rebellion

REBEL REBEL!
Fashion has always been a rebellious act, from those who create it, to those who refuse to embrace it, to those who actively reject it. Rebels continually push things forward to new limits and new directions by updating the status quo, but rebellion doesn’t have to be as obvious as wearing a torn jean jacket with safety pins and a mile high mohawk, even though that’s pretty fun. It can be as subtle as buying clothes from a small business run by POC, and, obviously, everything in between. Let’s take a big ol’ dive into it, shall we?
Get those fists in the air, Hags! Or not, it’s up to you.
