In this episode I take listener questions on women’s fashion:
- When did athleisure become mainstream?
- What about the kimono?
- Why is pink for girls and blue for boys?
- How did women express themselves in times of heavy fashion constraints?
- When did designer brands emerge and what impact did that have?
Women mentioned include Coco Chanel, Jane Austen, Jane Fonda, Venus, the Virgin Mary, Elizabeth Keckley, and Mary Todd Lincoln.
