Abercrombie, Lilly Pulitzer for Target, Success & Your Ego

Welcome to the #1 rated fashion podcast on iTunes! This week we are celebrating our (fleeting) victory of hitting #1 on iTunes charts by drinking Japanese sodas. (Spoiler: it gives us a major sugar rush.) In fashion news - Abercrombie & Fitch came out with new retail guidelines and Balenciaga’s website had a goof that (almost) gave customers the deal of a lifetime. Speaking of website goofs - were you able to get any Lilly Pulitzer for Target? If not, you are in good company. Target released Lilly’s diffusion line only to leave behind lots of disappointed customers. In other news, a new report shows that online customer service is king, a 3D printer company is hitting hard times, and Neiman Marcus is getting slammed by the FTC for (alleged) faux vs real fur problems. Our main topic is about success and ego! Is success like a drug? Can we ever be satisfied, or are we constantly craving more? Lisa and Kaarin talk about the concept of success, how it interacts with the ego, and the notion of fulfillment. Come hang out!

Fashion & the Environment, Jenna Lyons & J.Crew, Freelancer Workspaces

Welcome to another edition of Pop Fashion podcast! This week in hot topics - Marc by Marc Jacobs is getting sued by Adidas over a stripe situation, Jenna Lyons is being blamed for a recent downturn in J.Crew sales, and fashion bloggers are making bank through affiliate links. We have fantastic news on the eco-fashion front this week! Chinese factories reduced waste as an experiment that ultimately saved money and resources, and French luxury good company Kering is teaming up with H&M for a venture that recycles textiles. Turn your shirt inside out to see where it was manufactured as part of Fashion Revolution Day on Friday, April 24th, and hashtag it #whomademyclothes to bring awareness to manufacturing processes. Also, a report reveals the most and least environmentally responsible clothing companies and the names on both lists are going to surprise you. Finally, a new trend coming out of Korea called “Nono Fashion” is rocking our socks off. Our main topic this week is about freelancer workspaces! Are you able to work from home as a freelancer or is it cutting into your productivity? Do you opt to pay for a co-working space, or are there creative solutions to figuring out your office space quandary? Come hang out!

Fashion Runway Crashers, Victoria's Secret, Dealing with Burnout

Welcome to another edition of Pop Fashion podcast! This week Lisa starts the show with a very important PSA. In fashion hot topics, Nasty Gal isn't growing as fast as a certain #girlboss would like (but Warby Parker is making HOW MUCH per square foot?), a disgruntled neighbor crashed Australian fashion week, and Victoria's Secret launched a design schedule that is more in line with its fast fashion competitors. Also, is the tween market a viable business or are companies like Justice segmenting their audience too much to be profitable? American Apparel is in the news again regarding their new advertising campaign and because one of their shirts was (allegedly) copied by a luxury apparel company. 

 

Our main topic for this week is burnout! Are you suffering from burnout? Lisa and Kaarin explore the definition of burnout, explain the warning signs, and disclose personal stories about times they have experienced the stress monster known as burnout.

Prom Fashion 4-EVAH, Cosmopolitan Magazine, Sexism in the Workplace

Welcome to another edition of Pop Fashion podcast! This week in hot topics - a high heel that changes color will be released this year. THE FUTURE IS NOW, PEOPLE. In other news, it's springtime so prom is on our minds. Retailers are starting registries so girls don't end up at prom in the same dress (i.e. Brenda and Kelly on the BEST EVER 90's episode of 90210). In horrible prom news, a school in Pennsylvania is requiring pre-approval of prom dresses before female students are allowed to purchase tickets. Also, the New York Times recently featured an article that explored Christian Fashion Week in Tampa, Florida. But, is style an expression of religious freedom, or a means to draw a line in the stand when it comes to female members of the Church? In other news, American Eagle Outfitter's underwear brand, Aerie, won an award for body-positive advertising, and Cosmopolitan Magazine is under fire for a dubious beauty post. 

 

Our main topic is about sexism and sexual harassment in the workplace. What is a freelancer to do when he / she experiences harassment and doesn’t have the resources of a HR department? What are best practices to help ourselves and other small business owners? Come hang out!

Sneakerheads, Diddy's New Fragrance, The Neurology of Shopping

Welcome to another edition of Pop Fashion podcast! This week Lisa and Kaarin are totally pumped for the release of Fast and Furious 7. In fashion news -  Nike collectors are mad because their sneakers are falling apart after 25 years, Chanel is standardizing prices across the globe, and Eileen Fisher is aiming for 100% sustainable fashion practices by 2020. In other news, Diddy is getting back into the fragrance game with the release of his new scent 3AM. Also, retailers are hoping that sales will dramatically increase now that the weather is getting warmer. Our big topic is the neurology of how we shop! A new report explains the neuropathy of why shopping and sales are pleasurable. But, are we finding too much identity in consumerism? And, what would Tyler Durden think about all of this? Come hang out!
