Episode 259: New York Fashion Week

This week we dissect the remaining parts of New York Fashion Week that still make sense, including Tomo Koizumi's standout show and whatever Rag & Bone was doing with artificial intelligence. But wait! There's also a fashion crime involving a celeb favorite of the show. Beyond fashion week, we've got Amazon patents, a secret romance shocking the outdoor gear world, and a cotton supply chain transparency initiative. Come hang out!

Episode 258: Like Glamour Shots, But Better

Six retailers have filed for bankruptcy and we're only six weeks into 2019. What is happening? We don't know, but we're ready to pour one out. If you never got cast on America's Next Top Model, you're about to have another chance at model stardom...sort of. How prevalent is bullying in the fashion industry? H&M is shaking things up and bringing a former whistleblower on board. An outerwear brand collaborated with Inuit seamstresses, and Conde Nast is launching a B2B publication. Come hang out!


Episode 255: LVMH’s New Brand Under Its Umbrella Ella Ella

We are in two different places, but we still are bringing that sweet, sweet retail and fashion news to you. This week, the Marie Kondo effect is hitting thrift stores, the Lunar New Year is influencing collections, and Van Heusen had a class action settlement over fake sales. In other news, LVMH is about to make a deal, everyone is filing Chapter 11, an iconic flagship is closing, and there's a fashion crime involving jewelry and credit cards. Come hang out!

Episode 253: Fashion and Revenge

It's a new year with the same old problems as we discuss trademark arguments involving some of fashion's biggest names — and one 90s rock band. (No, really, there are three trademark lawsuits happening.) Dollar stores may be your new favorite place to shop for beauty products, we dig into the Raf Simons vs. Calvin Klein news from late last month, H&M has a cool new collab, and we wonder just how much Walmart is our new big brother. Come hang out!

Episode 251: Why Luxury Fashion and Hospitality Belong Together

Police in New Jersey are catching Amazon package thieves. Is ecommerce really that bad for the environment? What's the CFDA got to do with sustainability? The AP released a shocking report about internment camps producing apparel. We go over the Prada racism scandal while still sorting out the aftermath of the Dolce & Gabbana racism scandal. Finally, we finish off the show with fanny pack sales and our plans to ride the luxury train. Come hang out!


Episode 250: Fashion Print Ads will Never Be the Same

Welcome to another episode of Pop Fashion! In made of snakes news, an athletic retailer fired two executives and a luxury company CEO decided to step down for awhile (while he is being investigated). American Eagle is crushing it, Tory Burch has a new CEO, “premium mediocre” is a new term that needs to be discussed, and Living Coral is declared the color of 2019. The fate of the Bangladesh Accord is in the balance, and a fashion company known for their advertising dropped the bombshell that they won’t be generating print ads anymore. Come hang out!
