What did we do before podcasts?
I find it difficult to not be busy, as I’m sure many of us can relate to. If I’m not brushing up on my knowledge about something, I’m wasting time. I’m not saying this is a good attitude to have, but it’s one that I do nonetheless.
I spend my life listening to podcasts, whether I’m walking the dog or cleaning the house. There’s always something playing, so I’ve become rather the podcast connoisseur – especially if they relate to fashion.
Let’s get right to it. If you’re on the hunt for a new listen, make it one of these. From the Fashion Revolution podcast to Articles of Interest, there’s some real gems here.

Who better to host a fashion podcast than the world’s most respected and long-standing fashion publication?

After launching in 2019, Fashion Victims has quickly become one of the most popular fashion podcasts available.
Hosted by Luke Meagher and Darnell Jamal, the pair offer a tongue-in-cheek look into topics such as: ‘Are Kim Kardashian’s Skims the new corset?’ and ‘Leave Beyonce Alone’.
Dressed: The History Of Fashion
Who can forget the iconic scene in The Devil Wears Prada, when Miranda Priestly gives Andie Sachs a dressing down about the journey her blue sweater took to find itself in her wardrobe?
The Dressed podcast takes a well-researched look back at fashion from the years passed, explaining the social and cultural histories of every era.
