For the inaugural episode of Let’s Talk Clothes it only seemed right to have fellow fashionista, vintage enthusiast, and long-time friend Alyssa Newman on as the first guest. In this episode Alyssa and I talk: body image, questionable fashion choices of our youths, and personal fashion philosophies.
Hello and welcome!
You may be asking yourself, “Who is this woman?” and “What is this project?” Let me fill you in. I am an artist and maker based in Toronto, with a BFA in Photography and Textiles, an MA in Fashion, and an avid listener of podcasts. This combination of skills and interests has led me to make my own podcast, with a twist. Each week I will sit down with my guests to talk about their relationship with clothing.
As we all know clothing is a visual medium. You know what’s not a visual medium? Podcasts. Because of this not only will I be talking to my guess about their relationships with clothing, I will also be photographing each guest and their wardrobe. These photographs will be posted each week, here on the blog, along with their accompanying episode, as well as on Instagram. This way you, the lovely listener, can see how each guest expresses themselves through their clothing and appearance.
I hope that you enjoy this project as is grows and develops.
