About this Episode

In this episode, I get schooled by fashion designer Eric Gaskins who spend 35 years in the industry. He was trained by Givenchy, he designed for Koos Van Den Akker, and then his own label. Sometime in the early aughts he started the anonymous and notoriously biting fashion blog "The Emperor's Old Clothes" for which he outted himself when he retired from the industry in 2009. Come along for the ride and learn something with me about how craft and artistry have been lost in the fashion world.
