Welcome to another edition of Pop Fashion podcast! This week Lisa is away for work, so Navin brings his tech background to the pod to discuss the fashion industry. In style news, cultural appropriation becomes central to an international lawsuit, Abercrombie’s business is looking up, and Christmas decorating brings billions to New York City. Also, Victoria’s Secret drops a literal and figurative Bombshell on science, and cyber criminals are becoming more sophisticated at retail POS systems. Band of Outsiders is temporarily resurrected at Filene’s Basement, and bad guys get their briefcases at the Bad Guy Briefcase Store. For our main topic we discuss a brilliant commencement speech given by John Waters at the Rhode Island School of Design. Are you prepared to screw things up brilliantly? Are you failing in amazing ways? Come hang out!
