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!
