Welcome to a bizarro-world episode of Pop Fashion podcast. This week Lisa and Kaarin report separately to give you one jam-packed episode. Lisa starts by reading from Paris Hilton’s fantastic book Your Heiress Diary (#yourewelcome) In real news, the Pulitzer Center put out a report regarding Indonesia’s textile boom and how it is impacting the environment.

In other news, Walmart purchased ModCloth, a museum on Long Island has an exhibit all about Roy Halston Frowick (aka Halston), and Mexico’s sugar industry might be a harbinger for future retail exports. Finally, companies are scrambling to fulfill online orders at warehouses and the future involves robots. Come hang out with us!

Welcome to another episode of Pop Fashion! This week, Kaarin tries to explain the battle among Meryl Streep and Karl Lagerfeld. Buckle in for this one, kids. LuLaRoe customers are having trouble with the quality of the company's leggings, and BCBG is prepping for bankruptcy. In the lightning round, JCPenney is closing stores, Moonlight actors are in Calvin Klein ads, and Alibaba's counterfeit conviction rate is freaky low. A Target bomb plot got foiled by the feds, major brands pulled out of a summit in Bangladesh, and a closed American Apparel store lives again...sort of. Nothing happened this week, really. Come hang out!

Fast Fashion Defined, Payless Problems, New York Fashion Week

 

Welcome to another episode of Pop Fashion! This week, retail’s industry-wide nosedive continues with Nasty Gal finding a buyer and Payless considering major closures. The Sears doom-o-meter climbs as that department store drops Trump products (and we have the Nordstrom update for the week — maybe the last one for a while?). Lacoste is dropping out of NYFW, Neiman Marcus is trying plus-size clothing, the Met did something really cool on the internet, and Merriam-Webster is our boo. Plus! We review New York Fashion Week, for better or for worse, including Victoria Beckham, Oscar de la Renta, Public School, J.Crew, M Martin, Jason Wu, and Diane von Furstenberg. Come hang out!

Welcome to another episode of Pop Fashion! It’s a doozy, packed with fashion news. The CEO of Tiffany & Co. bounced the same weekend of the company’s first TV commercial in 20 years. Two major department stores dropped Ivanka Trump. Is Macy’s is looking for  buyer? Alibaba’s founder made a weird statement about war. Ralph Lauren’s CEO quit, Amazon dropped out of Men’s Fashion Week, Nicki Minaj is angry about shoes, and Kanye West is making New York Fashion Week schedulers crazy. Phew.

Welcome to another episode of Pop Fashion! First, we update the tally of designers leaving New York Fashion Week this year. Wet Seal is finally calling it quits, and an eyeglass designer faked his own kidnapping. In the speed round, the editor of British Vogue stepped down, a classic fashion book and movie is coming to Broadway, and Lady Gaga’s heading to the Super Bowl (in a Tiffany ad). Meanwhile, Abercrombie is cutting 150 jobs, and women in Britain have something new to shout about (hint: fewer dumb dress code rules). Come hang out!

Welcome to another episode of Pop Fashion! We catch up on the end of American Apparel, the Carolina Herrera vs. Oscar de la Renta drama, and figure out that Schiaparelli’s couture status got taken away but it’s back now. Pharrell Williams is modeling handbags, LeBron James’ 14s are getting some extra fanfare, and Neiman Marcus said “wait, nevermind” about its IPO plans. A boot company has major regrets about a design flaw, and big-name companies are skimping on new handbag stock. What gives? And Kaarin gives an amazing review of the Prada men’s show — but it’s not about the fashion. Come hang out!

This time it’s because she’s opening a flagship store right here in Washington, D.C.

How will the crime impact tourism in Paris? Will it influence high-end jewelry purchases? Moschino is under fire for a pill-themed capsule collection.

Welcome to another episode of Pop Fashion! This week, we're wondering why Alibaba got invited to join an anti-counterfeit group — and why companies are ditching their memberships.

This week on Pop Fashion, is Victoria's Secret ending its line of swimwear?

Welcome to another addition of Pop Fashion podcast! This week in fashion news - Nordstrom is going through a round of layoffs, the Target designer collaboration with Marimekko was considered “meh” (but is that an accurate representation?), and ads with counterfeit products are making their way to Instagram.

Peterman (of catalogue / Seinfeld fame) now has a Kickstarter. Our main topic is about bad friendships. Are you in an abusive friendship? How can we help and protect ourselves?

Our main topic is about staying on the bus! Lisa explains the Helsinki Bus Station Theory and how it applies to our careers and creative lives.

Welcome to a bizarro-world episode of Pop Fashion podcast. This week Lisa and Kaarin report separately to give you one jam-packed episode. Lisa starts by reading from Paris Hilton’s fantastic book Your Heiress Diary (#yourewelcome) In real news, the Pulitzer Center put out a report regarding Indonesia’s textile boom and how it is impacting the environment.

In other news, Walmart purchased ModCloth, a museum on Long Island has an exhibit all about Roy Halston Frowick (aka Halston), and Mexico’s sugar industry might be a harbinger for future retail exports. Finally, companies are scrambling to fulfill online orders at warehouses and the future involves robots. Come hang out with us!

Welcome to another episode of Pop Fashion! It’s a doozy, packed with fashion news. The CEO of Tiffany & Co. bounced the same weekend of the company’s first TV commercial in 20 years. Two major department stores dropped Ivanka Trump. Is Macy’s is looking for  buyer? Alibaba’s founder made a weird statement about war. Ralph Lauren’s CEO quit, Amazon dropped out of Men’s Fashion Week, Nicki Minaj is angry about shoes, and Kanye West is making New York Fashion Week schedulers crazy. Phew.

Rodarte + Proenza Schouler Ditch New York Fashion Week, RIP Wet Seal

Welcome to another episode of Pop Fashion! First, we update the tally of designers leaving New York Fashion Week this year. Wet Seal is finally calling it quits, and an eyeglass designer faked his own kidnapping. In the speed round, the editor of British Vogue stepped down, a classic fashion book and movie is coming to Broadway, and Lady Gaga’s heading to the Super Bowl (in a Tiffany ad). Meanwhile, Abercrombie is cutting 150 jobs, and women in Britain have something new to shout about (hint: fewer dumb dress code rules). Come hang out!

RIP American Apparel, LeBron James Sneakers, Disappearing Luxury Handbags

Welcome to another episode of Pop Fashion! We catch up on the end of American Apparel, the Carolina Herrera vs. Oscar de la Renta drama, and figure out that Schiaparelli’s couture status got taken away but it’s back now. Pharrell Williams is modeling handbags, LeBron James’ 14s are getting some extra fanfare, and Neiman Marcus said “wait, nevermind” about its IPO plans. A boot company has major regrets about a design flaw, and big-name companies are skimping on new handbag stock. What gives? And Kaarin gives an amazing review of the Prada men’s show — but it’s not about the fashion. Come hang out!

Aeropostale is Bankrupt, American Apparel + Small Business, Getting Through Burnout

Welcome to another episode of Pop Fashion! This week, we're wondering why Alibaba got invited to join an anti-counterfeit group — and why companies are ditching their memberships. Aeropostale filed for Chapter 11, and Zara might have ripped off the latest Yeezy collection. American Apparel is trying to up its "made in America" offerings, and a new initiative has big plans for all the clothing left at the dry cleaner.

This week on Pop Fashion, is Victoria's Secret ending its line of swimwear? Diane von Furstenberg said some shocking things about the fashion industry, and South Korea has an interesting plan for its Olympics uniforms. The political climate in China is changing, and it's time to start thinking about how it impacts the fashion industry. Meanwhile, Forever 21 is allegedly having a hard time paying its bills, and a store in England is introducing a quiet hour for autistic shoppers. Our main topic this week is the intersection of Fashion and Art. With the Met Gala fresh on our minds, how does fashion fit into museums? Is it easy to call fashion art, or are we trying to fit a square peg into a round hole? Come hang out!

Welcome to another episode of Pop Fashion! This week we debate the sanity of J.Crew's CEO after he gave out his email address. To everyone. Amazon's got it's eye on a few clothing companies that may surprise you;  meanwhile at Sears, many many stores are closing. Is H&M greenwashing, or making real sustainability headway? And JC Penney is doing something with Pinterest, so there's that. Our main topic is bragging: Is there a "right" way to do it?

Welcome to another addition of Pop Fashion podcast! This week in fashion news - Nordstrom is going through a round of layoffs, the Target designer collaboration with Marimekko was considered “meh” (but is that an accurate representation?), and ads with counterfeit products are making their way to Instagram. A new study says that people aren’t buying Made in America goods - are higher prices the barrier to sales? Adidas is coming out with a fly shoe made out of trash, and J. Peterman (of catalogue / Seinfeld fame) now has a Kickstarter. Our main topic is about bad friendships. Are you in an abusive friendship? How can we help and protect ourselves?

Also, the Council of Fashion Designers of America will televise their awards ceremony (will you watch?), and the New York Times makes us think about our current political landscape through the lens of fashion. Our main topic is about staying on the bus! Lisa explains the Helsinki Bus Station Theory and how it applies to our careers and creative lives.

Urban Outfitters is in big trouble once again for copying another designer, and we finally know what happened to Hood By Air skipping its last fashion show.

Feminist Fashion, Warehouse Robots, The Cost of Hoodies

Welcome to a bizarro-world episode of Pop Fashion podcast. This week Lisa and Kaarin report separately to give you one jam-packed episode. Lisa starts by reading from Paris Hilton’s fantastic book Your Heiress Diary (#yourewelcome) In real news, the Pulitzer Center put out a report regarding Indonesia’s textile boom and how it is impacting the environment. A video from BuzzFeed makes us question the cost of a hoodie. There is a rise in feminist apparel, but is it helping or hurting the causes behind the clothes? In other news, Walmart purchased ModCloth, a museum on Long Island has an exhibit all about Roy Halston Frowick (aka Halston), and Mexico’s sugar industry might be a harbinger for future retail exports. Finally, companies are scrambling to fulfill online orders at warehouses and the future involves robots. Come hang out with us!

Aeropostale is Bankrupt, American Apparel + Small Business, Getting Through Burnout

Welcome to another episode of Pop Fashion! This week, we're wondering why Alibaba got invited to join an anti-counterfeit group — and why companies are ditching their memberships. Aeropostale filed for Chapter 11, and Zara might have ripped off the latest Yeezy collection. American Apparel is trying to up its "made in America" offerings, and a new initiative has big plans for all the clothing left at the dry cleaner. Our main topic this week is getting through temporary burnout. How do you keep going when you can (barely) see the light at the end of the hardship tunnel? Come hang out!

This week on Pop Fashion, is Victoria's Secret ending its line of swimwear? Diane von Furstenberg said some shocking things about the fashion industry, and South Korea has an interesting plan for its Olympics uniforms. The political climate in China is changing, and it's time to start thinking about how it impacts the fashion industry. Meanwhile, Forever 21 is allegedly having a hard time paying its bills, and a store in England is introducing a quiet hour for autistic shoppers. Our main topic this week is the intersection of Fashion and Art. With the Met Gala fresh on our minds, how does fashion fit into museums? Is it easy to call fashion art, or are we trying to fit a square peg into a round hole? Come hang out!

J.Crew's Email Address, Is H&M Greenwashing Fashion? Bragging Rights

Welcome to another episode of Pop Fashion! This week we debate the sanity of J.Crew's CEO after he gave out his email address. To everyone. Amazon's got it's eye on a few clothing companies that may surprise you;  meanwhile at Sears, many many stores are closing. Is H&M greenwashing, or making real sustainability headway? And JC Penney is doing something with Pinterest, so there's that. Our main topic is bragging: Is there a "right" way to do it?

Nordstrom Layoffs, Target Fashion Collaborations, Abusive Friendships

Welcome to another addition of Pop Fashion podcast! This week in fashion news - Nordstrom is going through a round of layoffs, the Target designer collaboration with Marimekko was considered “meh” (but is that an accurate representation?), and ads with counterfeit products are making their way to Instagram. A new study says that people aren’t buying Made in America goods - are higher prices the barrier to sales? Adidas is coming out with a fly shoe made out of trash, and J. Peterman (of catalogue / Seinfeld fame) now has a Kickstarter. Our main topic is about bad friendships. Are you in an abusive friendship? How can we help and protect ourselves?

Our main topic is about staying on the bus! Lisa explains the Helsinki Bus Station Theory and how it applies to our careers and creative lives.

Are you a procrastinator? What can we do to stop our procrastinating ways? Socrates, Aristotle, and Jerry Seinfeld may help us find an answer. Come hang out!

Tom Ford + Drake, IBM's Beauty Blunder, Chronic Complainers

Welcome to another episode of Pop Fashion! We kick things off by talking about holiday windows, holiday ad blunders, and and tariffs on women's blazers. Yep! Kaarin tries to explain the Trans Pacific Partnership and what it means for fashion imports. We marvel over Tom Ford’s Drake-inspired lipstick that's sold out everywhere. IBM had a great idea for getting women involved in tech (hint: it didn't go so well). Allure magazine is back in the news, and we remember retail mogul and North Face founder Douglas Tompkins, who recently passed. Our main topic this week is chronic complainers. How do you deal with these sources of negativity? Are you a Debbie Downer? Come hang out!

Lupita's Light-Up Dress, Pantone Fashion, Einstein Time

Welcome to another episode of Pop Fashion! This week, we're talking about Pantone's colors of the year for 2016 and what they mean for politics and equality. Manolo Blahnik is still in trouble over some endangered leather, and a new expose about factories in Tanzania says a lot about manufacturing diversification. RadioShack hired a new creative director (you probably know him) to revitalize its stores, while J.Crew is still having issues boosting its sales. And we love Lupita Nyong'o's latest red carpet dress with a high-tech twist. Our main topic this week is Einstein Time, a concept by the Book The Big Leap by Gay Hendricks. Can you reconsider time as an internal concept instead of an external one that's out of your control? Come hang out with us!
