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.

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, 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

In this episode, Camille and Monica take you inside the gilded offices of Fashion’s e-commerce giant, Net-a-Porter, for an interview with the woman who has solidified Net as an editorial authority too.  After editing UK Harper’s Bazaar for 14 years, Lucy Yeomans has been editor-in-chief of Porter magazine since its launch in February 2014 — a time when most publications were moving from print to digital. After coming up with the idea of Porter with her friend Natalie Massenet, Lucy expertly spearheaded Net’s move against the tide, successfully founding a highly relevant fashion glossy that has exceeded all circulation expectations. Assembling an impressive masthead of fashion media heavyweights, she infused Porter with her unique perspective, creating a magazine that is one hundred percent on women's side.

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: Email: [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. Why Social Media is Ruining Your Life (Cassell) is available now on Amazon.

In Episode 4, Monica and Camille take a step back to reflect on a long-burning question: what do men really think about fashion? While males bear daily witness to the dizzying trend cycle of women’s ready-to-wear on our streets, men of all ages live in fear of the of question “do you like my outfit”. In order to investigate, Monica and Camille call on a cross section of their “fashion muggle” friends, boyfriends and fashion industry buddies for their unfiltered critiques. While Monica and Camille hold their tongues, the men let loose —and manage come out relatively unscathed. Meanwhile, Monica catches up with Angus Munro, one of fashions favourite casing agents, for the inside scoop on his seemingly dreamy job. And Camille calls her pal Leandra Medine aka “The Man Repeller” in NYC to find out why man repelling is not only a fashion tribe, but a way of life.
