This week we are loving Antonio Banderas’ new adventure: fashion school. Three conflicting fashion weeks in Asia are causing a lot of confusion and stress. Meanwhile, in the ever-speculative wearable tech world, we discuss the real and evolving marketplace for wearable technology (hint: maybe more function than fashion). Butchbaby & Co. is bringing a new aesthetic to maternity clothing, and JustFab’s customer service has left some customers feeling cheated. And Quiksilver is in major financial trouble, struggling to keep up with athleisure and fast fashion. Our main topic this week: fear and creativity. We break down author Elizabeth Gilbert’s guide to creative pursuits and discuss creative frustration, fear, authenticity, and originality. Come hang out!
