In this episode, we delve into the aesthetics of “ethical” fashion brands and how they make shapeless sacks and then charge $400 for them. We also highlight the underlying (and often subconscious) ways that racism can permeate how these brands market themselves. FUN TIMES!
Well it’s done and gone and over, good riddance, 2018.
In this episode, we are taking a look back at the highlights and lowlights of the year, fashion-wise, plus some great obsessions and general tangents. You guys, 2018 is gone forever.
This episode has been a long time coming. Way back in March (or April? who’s counting), Katie met Jenny Amber of Oenone Perfume (pronounced ee-no-nee) and they instantly connected over fragrances, fashion, podcasting, and general good times. Ever since, they have tried to connect to chat with the rest of the Hags about the mystery that is perfume making. Finally, here we are, with the Hags all in tow, and what an absolute delight this episode is. Who knew perfume making was so magical, alchemical, existential, physical, and emotional? Jenny did, as it turns out.
In this week’s episode, we are getting down to the real deal of the state of things in the fashion world and should we even care about it. Have things lost their way from the top down?

Using Eugene Rabkin’s Business of Fashion August 2018 Op-Ed, Whatever: How Fashion Lost Its Meaning as a jumping off point, we are taking a dive into the complicated question of Fashion versus Style in this weird moment of uncertainty – is it really just, whatever as Rabkin suggests? We are going to cover all the bases, talk about all the things, throw all the shade, eat all the Wunderbars. Come on in, Hags!
