Abby, Evan and Katie talk runway, magazines, designers, movies, art - all things fashion and how much it can drive us nuts.





In this week's episode, we are getting down to the real deal of the state of things in the fashion world and should we even care about it. Have things lost their way from the top down? Is anything even fashion anymore? Using Eugene Rabkin's Business of Fashion August 2018 Op-Ed, Whatever: How Fashion Lost Its Meaning as a jumping off point, we are taking a dive into the complicated question of Fashion versus Style in this weird moment of uncertainty - is it really just, whatever as Rabkin...

It is hard to ignore all the craziness going on in the world these days and reading the news can be a triggering and harrowing experience for many. So let’s talk about it, but make it fashion! In this episode, we are spilling some tea on who wore what for what, good or bad (looking at you Melania), and how politics and fashion are so connected. How do people use fashion to their advantage? How do they fuck it up? (Again, Melania…) And what difference does it make? We’ll guide you through...

FASHION HAGS Episode 65: FASHION HAGS Episode 65: Is Feminism in Fashion a Gimmick with Madison Reid

Well well well, it's report card season and we are checking in to see how well we've been doing at not being a dumb doofus when shopping for clothes.

FASHION HAGS Episode 63: Fashion's Future (Part 3)

The final in our trilogy of episodes where we try and predict the future of fashion. This week we talk about the garments and the technologies that we will all be using sooner than you think. In fact, we're already using them now! Whaaaaaat?!



Here's what's up. It's Dad time. Our first and biggest fan, Katie's Dad, Chris Garnham has joined us for an episode to talk about shopping for denim, the history of denim from a guy who just wants cardboard pants again, and of course, the major motor vehicle accident. It's almost too much to handle but we're pretty sure you can do it. Come on it, Hags! It's tea time.

This week, the Hags are looking at the shopping floor, digital and otherwise, and what is in store for this massive section of the fashion world.

FASHION HAGS Episode 60: Fashion's Future (Part 1)

Cast your gaze into the crystal ball and see into the future of fashion! OOoooOOO! Or just, listen to this podcast episode instead or whatever. The Hags are talking about what the future of the fashion world looks like (or what it hopefully will look like) when it comes to actually making clothes by dreaming up all the solutions to all the problems. Plus the usual nonsense.


FASHION HAGS Episode 59: Non Stop Red Carpet Reviews

FASHION HAGS Episode 57: Episode 57: The Joys of Shipping

Like all businesses and industries, shipping is a huge part of the world of fashion. And guess what, it's not just about getting those Gap tees and khaki's on super sale in time for your swing dance competition next week. In this week's episode, the Hags dish about the woes of the world of shipping and how we actually can't survive without it. Curses!


FASHION HAGS Episode 56 - The Demise of the Fashion Magazine

Are Vogue's print days over? Monthly fashion magazines were a direct line from the insiders of the fashion industry to the public but how can they survive in today's fast paced media landscape? And we somehow manage to fit in multiple Simpsons references.

FASHION HAGS Episode 54: Why Counterfeits Are Just Really Bad

So it turns out counterfeit goods are more than just a crappy knockoff of luxury goods. They are a massively profitable trillion dollar industry that funds terrorists, organized crime, human traffickers, and criminals of all kinds! Jump in for a highly depressing look at what is actually going on here. And please, if you see a guy down an alley selling that cute Chanel bag for $49, DON'T BUY IT.
