About Statements on Fashion

Statements on Fashion Podcast seeks to address accessibility to the field of fashion studies in a way many publications and scholarly works have not. There are a great number of people who are interested in thinking about fashion beyond simply clothing, but a dearth of accessible content that delivers this to them. We will cover a different aspect of fashion studies each month through both scholarly and practical interviews, delivering new information to listeners through an accessible platform.
