In this episode, the Hags get into what exactly licensing means when it comes to fashion. Hint: it’s how big companies make the most money by selling stuff other people make. Fun, right? Plus, obsessions and all the other fun things you’ve come to expect. Get into it!
Fashion and art have long been connected and it’s hard to say exactly which came first. Sort of a chicken/egg situation. We decided to crack some eggs and fry some chicken with artist and friend of the podcast Doug Watt to see how far to the bottom we could get on this.
Hi hi hi lovely listeners!
Back in the basement to talk about the things to talk about; this time about the role of the muse in fashion.
Ever heard of Audrey Hepburn? Or Hubert de Givenchy? Well those two legends are one of the most famous examples of fashion designer and muse and in this episode the Hags kiki through a few examples you might know and you might not. Jump in!
Ever heard of Marvel’s Jessica Jones? How about the Jenny Slate’s new film Landline? What about designing costumes for film and television? And the 90’s?
Well guess what, hunnies. We got to chit chat with Costume Designer extraordinaire Liz Vastola about all these things through the magic of space/time travel the internet. Joining us from the set of Jessica Jones in New York City, Liz set aside some time for the Hags to talk about all this and more.
Lots to report this week, including a surprise trip to NYC for Evan on his birthday and a near breakdown after a van breakdown. Plus, a listener-suggested topic about fashion school. Was it worth it? Was the transition from student life to work life difficult? Have we wasted our lives?
Short answer: yes, yes, no.
Long answer: listen to the latest episode and hear all about it!
All you book nerds out there, this episode is all yours. The Hags chit chat about their must-read and must-flip-through-every-page fashion books that do more than just make you look fancy when your pals come over for crackers and cheese (I mean charcuterie).
It is always so great to chat about something we’ve been excited about for a long time but had to keep under wraps. In this episode, the Hags finally get to spill on Evan’s latest (and best, we think) show called “Atavism” at Vancouver Indigenous Fashion Week. You guys! The best!
