1.8 Q&A on Women’s Fashion

Q&A on the History of Women’s Fashion

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.

This episode is part of the series What’s in the Closet and How It Got There.
