The British Fashion Council (BFC) is announcing today the release of a third series of its podcast, Fashion Forum. Launching today, episode one features writer, model & podcaster Trey Gaskin, talking to designer Olubiyi Thomas and stylist and founder of Boy.Brother.Friend KK Obi, about sustainability, creating authentic publishing, and how the fashion industry can help foster change. Further guests appearing on the third season of the podcast include Christopher Morency, Harris Reed, José Neves, Phillip Picardi, Susie Lau, Tim Blanks and Zinnia Kumar, with many more exciting names to come.
The Fashion Forum podcast aligns with the mission of the Institute of Positive Fashion (IPF), helping the British fashion industry lead in the goal to be more resilient and circular through global collaboration and local action. Centred around the three Pillars of the IPF, Environment, People and Community & Craftsmanship, each episode welcomes a new host and a broad range of voices, sharing personal experiences as well as discussing the biggest issues in fashion today relating to areas such as positive change, diversity, sustainability, education, culture, and technology.
The Fashion Forum Podcast launched in June 2020, with the second series being released in December 2020. The guests and themes were wide-ranging and topical, from Stella McCartney and Alex Fury discussing positive environmental change in fashion; to Tommy Hilfiger and Jo Ellison talking about Tommy’s brand’s work around inclusivity, equal opportunities and environmental initiatives; and Campbell Addy and Gabriella Karefa-Johnson speaking about breaking boundaries and the power of the collaborative spirit.
The third series of Fashion Forum will feature 10-episodes and run until October 2021. The podcast is available to listen to on londonfashionweek.co.uk, Acast, Apple Podcasts, Spotify and Google Podcasts.
