Launched in 2017, this chart-topping and industry-penetrating podcast that seeks to “decode the fashion industry” is hosted by Sydney, Australia-based Clare Press. Consumerism, activism, creativity, and more are all explored with a mindset that “Fashion touches everyone.”
With an outstanding host and industry pioneer who served as the first-ever sustainability editor for Vogue Magazine (Vogue Australia 2018-2021), the show is based on and named after Clare’s book, Wardrobe Crisis – How We Went from Sunday Best to Fast Fashion, named one of the “Best Books of 2016” by The Age. With nearly 150 episodes, a global audience, and over a million downloads, this show is taking a serious look at the way fashion impacts our environment.
Wardrobe Crisis features interviews with fashion industry leaders, supermodels, runway stars, activists, economists, and emerging designers and topics like plastic pollution, climate change, fair labor practices, and the future of fashion. Listeners can actively participate through a robust platform that includes access to a club and an online academy dedicated to sustainability education.
With a background in journalism, Clare’s show is well-crafted both in terms of content and production quality. If you are wearing clothes and concerned about the impact your clothing purchases, manufacturing, designing, and disposal is having on the environment as well as on your own health and well-being, get educated… take the time to binge-listen to this podcast.
