Balmain x H&M, Men's Fashion Relaxes, Empathy

Welcome to another episode of Pop Fashion! This week REI's making waves by closing all its stores on Black Friday. What the what? People are already listing Balmain for H&M pieces on eBay, two weeks ahead of the collection's arrival. Adidas is opening an automated sneaker factory, Walmart is trying to do Made in America better, and the U.S. is pouring money into Pakistan's garment industry. And men's suits are relaxing a bit -- are pleated pants about to take menswear by storm? Our main topic is empathy. Can sharing an experience with someone make you less empathetic? What can you do to apply empathy to your leadership skills? Have you walked a mile in someone else's shoes? Come hang out!

Fashion Runway Diversity, Birchbox's New Beauty Line, Your Personal Brand

Welcome to another episode of Pop Fashion! This week we talk about the upcoming retirement of America's Next Top Model after 12 years, Bulgari's tax evasion trial in Italy, and Birchbox's new in-house beauty brand. New York and Paris have launched a business exchange program to make it easier for startups to start doing business internationally. On the runway, an alarming survey has been released about diversity in fashion week shows. There's a new comic about the fashion industry, and we think it'll knock your socks off, and we've got new data about which cities love to use coupons. Our main topic this week: branding. We dig around in Ann Friedman's New Republic article about what personal branding means today. Come hang out!

Modcloth Simplifies Plus-Size Shopping, Chanel's Aviation Fashion Show, Emotional First Aid

Welcome to another episode of Pop Fashion! This week we talk about a dumb-dumb move by Urban Outfitters, which asked employees to volunteer for unpaid warehouse shifts. Marissa Webb is no longer creative director of Banana Republic, and Kay Krill just stepped down as head of Ann, Inc. Modcloth is changing the way you shop for plus-sized clothing (hooray!) and we are loving the Chanel spring 2016 runway. We look at Kickstarter's reincorporation and what it means for crowdfunding, and ponder the rescheduling of Australian Fashion Week. Our main topic: What's in your emotional first-aid kit? Come hang out!

American Apparel Bankruptcy, Mariah Carey & MAC, Weird Jobs

Welcome to another episode of Pop Fashion! This week we discuss American Apparel filing for bankruptcy and what it means for shareholders, Dov Charney, and our nation's supply of gold lame booty shorts. As Ralph Lauren steps down as CEO of his very-long-running clothing line, we evaluate the qualifications of his successor, Stefan Larson. And about those models wearing models on the Rick Owens runway…yeah, we talk about that. In other news, Mariah Carey is collaborating with MAC, and Blake Lively shut down her lifestyle site, Preserve. Our main topic this week: jobs! We're talking about the lessons we've learned from all the crazy places our careers have taken us so far. Come hang out!

Fashion Unicorns, Maternity Clothing for All, Elizabeth Gilbert's Creativity

Welcome to another episode of Pop Fashion! 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!
