Podcasts are multiplying by the second. So much so that it almost seems impossible to listen to every raving recommendation from a friend. For those starting out in a career, listening to podcasts can either be a fantastic place to get advice or to instantly feel overwhelmed. For those looking for a career in fashion, especially fashion journalism, listen to these podcasts now. I promise you will only be invigorated with feelings of motivation and inspiration.

Illustrator, author, entrepreneur, and blogger extraordinaire, Garance Doré expanded her world into podcasts early this year and what a joy. She brings her infectious curiosity and optimism into the world of conversation, interviewing everyone who inspires her. Her conversations range from interviews with fashion icons like Michael KorsPhillip Lim, and Pat Cleveland, to chats with her friends in the studio about tattoos, sex, and exercise. Her elegance, authenticity, and passion make for a podcast you can’t miss.

Fashion Features Editor Pandora Sykes and dating columnist Dolly Alderton of The Sunday Times Style host a pop culture podcast that balances poise and hilarity. Every Friday they tackle the week’s news, fashion advice, and the latest in pop culture ridiculousness. They analyze every tweet, highlight moment, and catastrophe in a way you wish you and your friends could do. Filled with brilliant advice about careers in writing, being “modern women”, and young, driven professionals, you’ll feel motivated to become their best friends within moments of tuning in. Their “high street buys of the week” are always worth a listen.

Emma Gannon is a force to be reckoned with. At 27, she has already built up such an impressive career, including author of her very own book about growing up on the Internet. Her refreshingly optimistic attitude toward the World Wide Web imbues her listeners with a new perspective about the Digital Age. She herself is a perfect example. Her blog, originally titled Girl Lost in the City, which she vigilantly worked on grew to so much success that she could quit her day job and seize the world. Her conversations with inspiring women, including Liz Gilbert and Cheryl Strayed, are amazingly mature and insightful.

New York Fashion Week Street Style Report

Spring / Summer ’17 shows in New York once again brought together a diverse play of prints, fits, and vibes. While the runways were shining with a fresh scent of spring summer visions, street style lived here, in this moment. We were able to view an eclectic collection of on-my-way-to-a-show moments at the fashion capital. The streets were decorated with style stars in stunning candy-tones and monochrome fits, not to mention that the concrete jungle heat wave stopped no attendees from projecting their best looks this fashion week. You’re currently obsessing over sparkly slides, puffy sleeves, or silky jewel-toned slips, and we are too. These are the few of many ensembles that played our hearts.

Velvet Dreams

We saw it all over Victoria Beckham‘s runway, and it’s making its way back into our lives in all shades and forms. Summer sun brought these velvet looks to life, and we can’t wait to channel our textural love this fall.
