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

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?

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?

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!

Selfie Stick Style, Miami Swim Week, Having it All 

 

Welcome to another edition of Pop Fashion podcast! This week in hot topics - Walmart is accused of using shell companies to dodge taxes, a selfie stick dress by Pucci is a fashion marker for 2015, and Zara faces a lawsuit by a former employee who alleges discrimination.

Also, virtual reality fitting rooms are becoming an actuality (and people are starting to make Minority Report comparisons), but are we ready for that type of retail technology? Additionally, Michael Kors reached a settlement for (allegedly) pricing items incorrectly - which takes Kaarin and Lisa down a road of trash talking outlet shopping. Would you wear your mother’s wedding dress? How about a dress that has been handed down 127 years? Lisa brings a cool story to the podcast about a family that passed down a wedding gown for generations. Finally, did you know that the CIA had a hand in promoting the American Expressionism Art Movement as part of a larger propaganda ploy? Yeah, we didn’t know that either. 

 

Our main topic this week is about creative inertia. What happens when we feel creative block? How does it behave, and what are some ways that we can move forward? Come hang out!

Welcome to another edition of Pop Fashion podcast! This week in hot topics - J.Crew announces corporate layoffs, Procter & Gamble sells off their famous beauty brands (i.e. CoverGirl), and Marc Jacobs reveals Willow Smith and Cher as his models for Fall 2015.

And, are journalists to blame for not placing enough emphasis on fashion’s part with climate change?

Lauren Conrad’s Banned Words, Tailoring on Demand, Vacation Tips

Welcome to another edition of Pop Fashion podcast! This week in hot topics - Band of Outsiders might join the Retail Death Watch list, Dov Charney is back to his old tricks again (but American Apparel isn't playing games this time around), and fashion brands are banking on Instagram as their social media platform of choice. In other news, Lilly Pulitzer is in the spotlight after a New York magazine article gets them in hot water, and Almay's "Simply American" campaign may be stretching the truth. Police in Bangladesh filed formal murder charges against 41 people in connection to the Rana Plaza Factory collapse. Also, zTailors may be the wave of the future when it comes to hemming your pants, and Lauren Conrad is receiving accolades after banning three words from her website.

 

Our main topic for the week is all about vacation! Scientific studies have shown that vacation is good for our brains, so why do we have a hard time disconnecting? Are there ways to successfully take time off from our jobs? Is it different for freelancers? Come hang out!

Taylor Swift’s Jumpsuit, Band of Ballers, Protecting Your Time

Welcome to the week of crazy social media mishaps with fashion brands! Nasty Gal accidentally admitted they were copycats after tweeting about Taylor Swift at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards, Under Armor managed to irritate the entire military (and Facebook) with a t-shirt, and Pacific Sunwear is pulling one of their offensive t-shirts, too. In other news, Coach is going through a round of layoffs in Canada and Ann Taylor just sold to a retail group for over $2 billion. The Cannes Film Festival made waves this year for their (alleged!) rules on footwear. Also, sapphires from Kashmir are currently being sold for astronomical prices. But, these gemstones have a fascinating history and political reasons for their heavy price tags.  

 

Our main topic is about time! This week we discuss the philosopher Seneca. Two thousand years ago he wrote about time management, being busy as an addiction, and saying no to people who steal your time. Surprise! All of our time problems aren’t new. Come hang as we look to history to give us insight(s) to our hectic schedules.

How does the idea of being lazy interact with feeling overwhelmed? And, should we remove the term “lazy” from our vocabulary altogether? Come hang out with us!

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 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!

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!

Madewell Fashion, SXSW Free Swag, Impostor Syndrome

Welcome to Pop Fashion podcast! This week in hot topics - Nordstrom (allegedly) forgot to tell people they have an aviation department. At the same time, J.Crew's golden child, Madewell, is signing up to be part of the Nordstrom empire. In other news, Stitch Fix is an example of a rapidly growing fashion company that has developed a new mode of shopping. Also, Nike is going after three former employees. Is this a case of a corporation going after the little guy, or three designers playing cat and mouse? The Wall Street Journal penned an article about flats vs heels - are flats now acceptable as a stylish staple? Finally, South By South West (SXSW) has become THE annual event for tech & music, but is all that free swag really free? Or, do you have to sell yourself to get into the great parties? Come hang out!

We will tell you some hints, tips, and lessons we have learned in the wild, wild world of meeting strangers for business purposes. Come hang out!

Fashion's Skinny Shaming, Threats to U.S. Malls, 52nd Episode Celebration

Welcome to a special episode of Pop Fashion podcast! It's our 52nd episode, which means we are celebrating one year of fashion news with some bubbly and cake. In hot topics - an apparel company devised a marketing technique that completely backfired (and had Twitter buzzing about body shaming), and marijuana makeup might be the next big beauty trend. In international news, extremists have threatened shopping malls in the United States, Britain, and Canada. But, are they credible threats? On a much lighter note, Saturday Night Live's costuming department revealed what is like to get all those ensembles ready on a weekly basis. Lisa and Kaarin talk about what they have learned after one year of reporting fashion news. Come hang out!

The main topic is about extreme management styles! Zappos is currently experimenting with Holacracy, but will the no job titles / no managers / no hierarchy enterprise work? What is your management style? How do you manage yourself? And, what kind of fashion podcast talks about Machiavelli? This fashion podcast does. Come hang out!
