Your hosts are determined not to let the world coming to the end completely kill the magic, whilst addressing head-on the shiny pink elephant on the catwalk. Enter the world’s most fashionable activist: the brilliant and beautiful Arizona Muse. In this episode, Arizona, Monica and Camille discuss the practical ways in which we can all make a difference in our daily (and fashionable) lives… so we might continue to enjoy getting dressed in the morning without that niggling guilty voice in our heads.

In this very first installation of our #dressedforradio live series, in partnership with Escada, your hosts sit down to tackle the gargantuan topic of female empowerment and the art of power dressing. Speaking to the very talented and wonderfully outspoken stylist and fashion consultant, Tallulah Harlech, they discuss everything to do with the transformative nature of clothes: can an outfit really change your mood or land you that dream job ? Is it sexist to dissect and comment on the outfits of our female politicians? Does one have to dress like one of the boys to be heard in the boardroom? Plus, Tallulah explains what its really like growing up under the watch of the formidable Amanda Harlech, who was a true muse to John Galliano and the late Karl Lagerfeld, and has repeatedly been voted one of the best dressed women in the world, how sportswear is the answer to all your styling woes and why it’s so important to get away from this dated notion that as women, it is in any way denigrating to talk (or care) about what we wear. To finish: some practical tips on how to style a power suit and a Q&A from the audience. Follow Tallulah on instagram: @Realtallulahharlech Email [email protected] or reach us on Instagram @fashionnofilter.Thank you again to this episode’s sponsor, Escada.  Visit https://www.escada.com/us and follow @EscadaOfficial

Fashion No: Filter takes you into the heart of the New York Fashion scene for the third and final episode from its New York Trilogy. This time, Monica and Camille make a visit to the home of Brazilian creative director Francisco Costa. Best known for his 13-year tenure as Women’s Creative Director of Calvin Klein, Costa twice won the coveted CFDA Designer of the Year Award during this time— the highest honour for a fashion designer in America. Today, Costa is reflective on his journey from a childhood growing up in Brazil, inspired by his designer and community-organised mother, to Manhattan in the 90s, where he taught himself English before attending FIT and being hired to design for Oscar de La Renta and Gucci under Tom Ford. Uniquely open, fun, and generous in spirit, Costa lets your hosts in on his true feelings about the state of big fashion business today, and takes them on a mental trip to the Amazon, where, after leaving Calvin Klein, he found his new source of inspiration. His latest venture, Costa Brazil, is not only sustainable but sources its ingredients from the depths of the Amazon rainforest. And as Monica and Camille learn, Costa’s scents and luxurious oils, like all his creative endeavours (and storytelling!) transport you to another world….Follow Francesco Costa on instagram: @costafrancesco and @costabrazilEmail [email protected] or reach us on Instagram @fashionnofilter for any questions.

In this week’s instalment of Fashion: No filter, your hosts Camille and Monica are still parked stateside for the resort shows and continue their exploration of the NY design scene. Enter Cate Holstein, founder of Khaite, one of the most talked about emerging brands in the industry today, that launched in the Fall of 2016 — and is incidentally up for the 2019 CFDAs fashion awards emerging designer of the year on June 3rd. The girls sit down with Cate to talk to her about what made her want to launch a label of carefully curated basics — or as she likes to call them “cherished pieces” in the era of loud digital statements and an oversaturated market.They cover everything from her first stab at design for her namesake label (that closed shortly after the 2008 recession hit the US), to cutting her teeth as a designer on the high street at GAP and in the luxury market for Vera Wang, to what made her come full circle and back to designing her own thing, only this time focusing her aesthetic on a quiet collection of timeless classics — a spot that has been highly coveted since the departure of Phoebe Philo at @OldCéline.Follow Khaite on instagram: @Khaite_nyEmail [email protected] or reach us on Instagram @fashionnofilter.

Celebrities. They just know how to look fabulous for every occasion, right? Well, no. Turns out, there is a fashion mastermind behind most red carpet moments these days, and none is more revered than Kate Young. As go-to stylist for the stars, Kate has put (and kept) names like Margot Robbie, Selina Gomez, Sienna Miller and Rachel Weisz on the fashion map. Oscars? Cannes? MET Gala? Publicity tours? You name it, she’s orchestrated the look for it! Fashion No Filter flew to New York on the eve of The MET Ball — fashion’s biggest red carpet extravaganza — to catch up with Kate and find out what her job really entails. Tune in for an unfiltered discussion on the current climate in fashion, what its really like working for Anna Wintour (Kate started her career at Vogue US where she went from being Anna’s assistant to holding the Sittings Editor position for many years before turning her attention to full time celebrity styling), the scoop on how fashion icons, and their iconic looks are made — from fittings to fiascos — not to mention some pretty real chat about what it means to be a feminist today. And, stay for a bonus review of The MET Gala’s weirdest and most wonderful looks in the form of a rap (!) by beat poet/fashion publicist Sophie Roche Conti. Email [email protected] or reach us on Instagram @fashionnofilter, @camillecharriere, @monicaainley.

Monica and Camille get a studio visit from friend-of-the-pod Alexandra van Houtte, founder and CEO of tag-walk.com, fashion’s first online search engine. At 29 Alexandra is already a key figure in the fashion tech landscape, having dreamt up the idea of a keyword search database for stylists and journalists in need of a reference centre for runway pieces, new designers and trends. Alexandra had the idea while working as a frustrated stylist at Paris fashion glossies, identifying a missing tool while planning shoots for editors late into the night. When she launched Tagwalk three years ago from her sofa, investors turned her down and the press was slow to catch on to the concept. Today, Alexandra is on Vanity Fair’s list of the world’s 50 most influential French people. How did she ascend to fashion greatness in such a short period of time? Who are the mentors that kept her focused on the big picture? How did she learn to be a good boss? Tune in for all this and a couple good chuckles! The accounts mentioned in today’s episode are as follows:@Alexandravanhoutte @Tagwalk @Sophiefontanel @wearmarcia @alighieri_jewellery @indg0 @nasa @somewhereiwouldliketolive @oldmagnet @parisnightkisses @parisiensinparis

This week New York Times fashion director and chief fashion critic Vanessa Friedman talks to your hosts about her month-long probe into the sexual misconduct allegations against photographers Marion Testing and Bruce Weber. In January this year, dozens of men stated that Mario Testino and Bruce Weber had secually exploited them on set. Next, similar allegations were levelled against Patrick Demarchelier.The domino effect commenced: within just a few months, a handful of fashion's most powerful photographers had been dethroned, denounced and accused of exploiting their immense power. Yet the backlash was muted, and a wider, mainstream ripple was basically nonexistent. The men weren't publicly slated in the way that various Hollywood figures had been, and most publications chose to quietly phase them out as opposed to issuing public statements.Monica and Camille talk to Vanessa Friedman about the importance of real accountability in the fashion industry and why there is still a way to go despite the #metoo awakening. They also ask her about what it takes to be an objective and fair arbitrator in the creative field, the importance of critical feedback for all and the new role social media has started to play in this field. Articles mentioned: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/03/style/sexual-harassment-in-fashion.htmlEmail: [email protected] or reach us on Instagram @fashionnofilter

In this week’s episode of Fashion: No Filter, your hosts catch up with their longtime friend, the journalist and consultant Katherine Ormerod, newly published author of Why Social Media is Ruining Your Life. Already a critical success, Katherine’s book tackles head-on the pressure we feel daily through our time spent on social media. Thoroughly researched with a personal experience-led narrative, the book paints an alarming picture of the realities of modern life dominated by social media addiction. But it’s not all bad news; Katherine transforms our relationship with Instagram into a lesson in how to allow it to help, rather than hinder one’s career, relationships and general life. Monica and Camille open up to Katherine about their own digital dilemmas, from time spent online, to work-Instagram balance and “comparititis”.Instagram accounts mentioned in this episode include @Katherine_Ormerod @mamalovesgrey @effyourbeautystandards @lucysheridan @ihadamiscarriage.

And finally, your hosts speak to jewellery designer Anissa Kermiche about her treatment of the naked female body in her work, and the cultural conflicts that can come with nudity in artwork.
