American fashion designer
Naomi Campbell, Kimora Lee Simmons, Tyra Banks, Tyson Beckford were dazzling, barrier-breaking supermodels of color in the '90s. But two decades earlier, Bethann Hardison burst onto French and American runways with a defiant strut and sui generis personality. In this intimate and insightful documentary, INVISIBLE BEAUTY, fashion revolutionary and co-director Bethann Hardison looks back on her journey as a pioneering Black model, modeling agent, and activist, shining a light on an untold chapter in the fight for racial diversity. Catalyzing change requires continuous championing, and as the next generation takes the reins, Hardison reflects on her personal journey and the cost of being a pioneer, as well as the satisfaction of being the first Black woman to own a racially diverse modeling agency, Hardison called out fashion houses around the world (including Prada and Calvin Klein) for the lack of models of color in their shows and the exclusionary casting calls that had become rampant in the industry (“No Blacks, no ethnics”), while profiting from Black consumers. In tandem with Frédéric Tcheng (Halston, Dior and I), Bethann Hardison and her co-director trace her impact on fashion from runway shows in New York and Paris in the '70s to roundtables about lack of racial diversity in the early 2000s. Interviews with industry players speak to the state of fashion, while friends and family attest to Hardison's rebellious and ambitious spirit. INVISIBLE BEAUTY is an absorbing record of Hardison's accomplishments and a rare contemplation on the life of a radical thinker. The co-directors Bethann Hardison and Frederic Tcheng join us for a conversation on the cinematic and personal journey that the film has taken them on.

Check then out on SHOPAssociation.orgOK, let's dig in... With our first interview of the season with two remarkable women Susan Magsamen and Ivy Ross whose recent book “Your Brain on Art has garnered huge attention since its recent release. But first a few thoughts on art and making...****************When I was about 9 years old and my mom had me in an after school art program at a local painting studio near my childhood home. Thursdays, as it would turn out, became the single time of the week where the outside world disappeared and I entered into a place of pure creativity and innovation which many years later I would discover was called “flow.”Even to this day Thursdays seemed to hold a special body memory for me of calm and an internal sense of both peace and joy. Thursdays somehow carry a different energy from me that I think was implanted in my body all those years ago where my creative passion was fully expressed.For years I would paint on Thursdays and that turned into a passion that became a profession as an architect. I wasn't great at math or physics but I was pretty confident about my skills in art and I knew that there was something specific about the feeling that I had in going to this small art studio that was because of the things I was doing as well as the place that I was doing it in. So studying architecture was always grounded in this idea for me of creating places that moved people emotionally. It didn't matter to me too much whether you loved it or hated it, although I would have preferred you loved it. But my goal was always to connect to people on an emotional level to find the right combination of materials and finishes space volumes and textures and all those other things that we have in our architects toolbox and how we moved through and experience space from a mind – body emotional perspective.I think early on I developed an aesthetic mindset. I seemed to have a high level of curiosity, a love of play and open-ended exploration, a keen sensory awareness and a drive to engage in activities as a maker or beholder. Through my architecture studies at McGill University I discovered principles of experience rooted in ritual and that there was a very different physical and emotional feeling connected to participating in ritual versus simply watching them. I was always very interested in how people participated in space. How they participated in the making of their experiences because I always believed that in making we brought something unique to the world that humans were capable of doing better than any other creatures on the planet. I developed a keen interest in ontological design - basically put - that the things we make return the favor by in part making us who we are. Our neurobiology reacts to the environment around us and so our mind body state is directly influenced by what we experience in the built environment. Our brains are in a feedback loop of making and being made by experience.The Irish poet John O'Donoghue once said “art is the essence of awareness” and I find that particularly relevant to how we experience the places that we build and how we interact with them. What I learned as a young artist on Thursday afternoons was that somehow in the making of things I became acutely aware of my mind body state as well as my surroundings.As I started to create and design retail places it seemed that everywhere I walked the world around me became more relevant I was tuning in to everything that I could see and hear. When in the middle of trying to solve a design challenge, I seemed to tune into things that might not have otherwise been apparent to me.What I found interesting was that this attunement to the environment around me also grew a connection between my sensory experiences and my appreciation of art. As I engaged more fully in the environment around me and the various kinds of arts I also learned more about myself. During the recent pandemic I turned to painting to help navigate the uncertainty and ambiguity of a global crisis that had left everything that I had believed to be true and a path that I had created for myself professionally in flux. Art it seemed became the grounding mechanism that calmed my nervous system that brought joy amidst uncertainty.Over the past few decades as a creative architect I've become acutely aware that the environment around us has a profound effect on our mind body state, our sense of well-being, our feelings of joy, community, connection, belonging, relevance. Being exposed to the arts provided context and meaning, a way for me to understand where I stood in the grand scheme of things. And art also gave me a sense of agency of being able to have a sense of control and to bring things into the world that had never been there before.And so, because of all of these understandings I have a deep appreciation for the book recently published by Susan Magsamen and Ivy Ross called “Your Brain on Art: How the Arts Transform Us.”This book is wildly successful because I believe it is a writing whose time has come. It brings forward the ideas that the arts are fundamental to who we are as people and that long before we had written language we danced around fires sang songs, made drawings on walls and shared the meaning of our lives with each other by being in community, in relationships, participating in rituals and making. And so, it's not surprising that the arts in all of its forms visual, literary, dance, sculpture and others are part of who we are as individuals and as members of a broader human whole.When I bought this book I thought that it would help me understand the neuroscience of what was happening in my brain as I stood in front of a painting. But it did more than that. It helped to unpack why I was led to feel certain ways about my experience of art in general including paintings, dance, musical theater, poetry, a good movie and a great book.It was chock full of examples and great research on how the arts are used in healing practices and health care industry to augment patient recovery. It looked at how the arts are being used in education, though not nearly enough, to enhance learning.Your brain on Art also brought me greater understanding about making music and how memories are tied to our experiences of hearing music. That's why it's likely you can clearly remember tunes from your childhood and tag them to early childhood experiences. Or why your playlists from your high school years probably are still able to be recalled with ease. And why I can remember the high school dance and my girlfriend at the time and the song Lucky Man by Emerson Lake and Palmer and that kiss.The book dives into understanding arts and the neurodivergent brain and play and how these are critical to our development.And if all of that wasn't quite enough it digs into the idea of how the arts support flourishing and asks the question - What constitutes a good life? I did not know that there is a burgeoning subfield of neuroscience and psychology now dedicated to identifying and understanding the neural mechanisms that contribute to a state of flourishing. And Your Brain on Art brings to light some of the neuroscience related to creativity, awe and wonder.Your Brain on Art is a collaborative effort between two remarkable women who together combine neuroscience and creative vision into a must-read book.Susan Magsamen has over 35 years of experience in developing effective learning programs rooted in the science of learning and is an active member of the brain sciences research, arts, education and social impact communities.

Today is about what you can STOP doing. There's a some questionable marketing going on out there and I'll share what's really working for my clients and what's not.

There's so much misinformation out there and I'd like you to know what to do and what to skip. We cover: posting on social media and the "old school" (and unprofitable) way people are still doing it the mistake of "us too" branding even though it seems safer Calvin Klein vs. Ralph Lauren and which one's kicking arse with engagement the product photography that looks outdated right now SEO - the slow and steady success of search engine optimization for ALL OF MY CLIENTS!

“I've always loved helping people, that's one of my core values.”In this episode, our guest helps us to look into ourselves and ask what our purpose is and what kind of impact and legacy we'd like to leave this world.A lot of the great leaders I know didn't come from an easy life, they've had to go through stages of transformation and were often underdogs. Our guest his week was no exception to life's challenges.But what sets people like him apart are the choices he made along the way, whether he allowed these hardships or disadvantages to make him weak, or whether to use them as his something that would later on push him to be someone who didn't only chase after his own success, but also made it his mission to pull others up along with him.ABOUT OUR GUESTAdam Strong is known as the ‘Game Changer', Best Selling Author, Entrepreneur, International Speaker and Founder of ‘The Game Changers Experience' podcast.

After having his leg amputated due to cancer, James Parr had to first cope with his own internalised ableism before changing the perceptions of his friends and his ever-expanding social communities. This included a recent Instagram post involving being asked to travel to Paris to meet a person with a fetish for amputees. James challenged those who responded to the post "Gross" as they weren't saying the offer was but that someone finding his disability sexy were. When you're not finding him walking the runways around the country or being the face of brands like Calvin Klein you can find James writing disability advocacy pieces for Harpers Bazaar he's found in studio with us - Dylan Alcott and Angus O'Loughlin.

In Ep. 92 of Earned, Conor sits down with Steven Waldberg, SVP of Global Brand Engagement & Communications at Top 10-certified skincare brand Kiehl's. Conor and Steven start by diving into Meta's latest app launch—Threads—and Steven shares his thoughts on the platform thus far, explaining why marketers should be there to test and learn. Next, we take a step back and discuss Steven's experience growing up in France with a French father and American mother, and hear how joining L'Oréal after college allowed him to live out his American dream of moving to New York. After many years spent at L'Oréal, Steven shares why he decided to venture into the luxury fashion industry and take on global communication roles at Bulgari and Calvin Klein, before eventually returning to his “home” at L'Oréal. The pair then unpack the evolution of social media and digital marketing, and Steven emphasizes why brands should “be where culture is,” and lean into emerging platforms and creators in order to connect with their consumers. Steven also explains why the only way to be successful on new and existing platforms is to go in with curiosity and a willingness to fail. We then explore Kiehl's' approach to global marketing, and the keys to resonating with consumers across markets and cultures. To close the episode, Conor and Steven talk about overcoming their people-pleasing tendencies and the isolating nature of leadership.In this episode, you will learn:Why brands need to "be where culture is," and approach new channels and platforms with curiosity and a willingness to failWhy global brands should establish a framework of "brand truths" that teams in local markets can then adapt to resonate with the local culture and consumersHow to overcome people-pleasing tendencies as a leaderResources:Kiehl'sConnect with the Guest(s):Steven Waldberg's LinkedInConnect with Conor Begley & CreatorIQ:Conor's LinkedIn - @conormbegleyCreatorIQ LinkedIn - @creatoriqFollow us on social:CreatorIQ YouTube - @TribeDynamicsCreatorIQ Instagram - @creatoriqCreatorIQ TikTok - @creator.iqCreatorIQ Twitter - @CreatorIQ

After graduating from Penn State University and landing his first big job in Dallas, Rod Twakihikira thought he had made it. Having immigrated to the U.S. from Africa in his teens, he had the grit and the drive. Having graduated from one of the nation's top 20 Universities, he had the smarts. Having literally modeled underwear for Calvin Klein, he certainly had the looks. Behind his desk, in his swanky new suit, he had all the makings of another African American success story.

Retail juggernaut, Walgreens is beginning to prioritize healthcare across all their service offerings. Linh Peters is Walgreens' CMO, and she joins today to describe the role that marketing will play in her employer's new venture. Linh has worked with other huge brands including Calvin Klein, Best Buy, Target, and Starbucks, and she explains how the challenges in her current role differ from the other jobs she's worked before. As a loyalty specialist, Linh goes into detail about the current state of marketing, the ins and outs of Walgreens' myW™ Days program, why brands have less power now than they did before COVID, and how a rewards program influences a CMO's marketing strategy. We learn about how the data alone can validate any rewards program, why the most important thing is to connect with customers as opposed to giving out freebies, the biggest mistakes that first-timers make when launching a loyalty program, and whether the recent changes in marketing are for better or worse. Our guest also explains how a harrowing 5months on a boat informed her worldview, how her upbringing in Vietnam and migration to America influenced her career choices and bred her passion for healthcare, how having a personal board of directors could grow you as a leader, and what the future of Walgreens looks like: healthcare, marketing, and beyond!

In this episode of the Brief Talk Podcast, Tim welcomes Dio, an Irish go-go dancer currently residing in Seoul, South Korea. Dio shares his intriguing journey into the world of underwear, revealing how it has played a significant role in his personal transformation. Previously lacking confidence due to weight concerns, Dio recalls his first purchase of a daring harness and thong from AliExpress, which sparked his interest in the power of underwear. He specifically expresses his fondness for Calvin Klein underwear, particularly the grey designs that effortlessly blend comfort and sexiness. Despite evolving trends, Dio has remained true to the underwear styles that make him feel special. Tim delves into the influence of the Asian market on Dio's underwear choices, given his relocation to Korea and involvement in go-go dancing. Dio acknowledges the distinct characteristics of Asian underwear designs, highlighting their silkier material and smaller, more revealing cuts. He finds the sexier fit of Asian underwear, particularly briefs, visually appealing, although they may not provide as much room as some may desire. Dio's recent experience as a model for grey Calvin Klein underwear reinforces the subconscious draw towards familiar and comfortable choices. Throughout the conversation, the hosts celebrate the diverse options available in the world of underwear, emphasizing the importance of personal comfort and confidence when selecting underwear.

We are so honored to have a very special guest for our Designer Spotlight series this week! Introducing Marrisa Wilson, of Marrisa Wison NY - an up-and-coming fashion designer you need to know - and the recent winner of the 2023 Fashion Group International Rising Star Award, Ready-to-Wear Category. #YYYAAAAASSSS As you know, one of Holly's passions is supporting new designers, small businesses, and especially women entrepreneurs that are changing the fashion industry for the better. This series in our podcast gives us the opportunity to learn about how fashion is created, and to peek behind the seams (pun, get it? ha!) to learn about the art of fashion and the artists who create it. Have you ever wondered how someone becomes a fashion designer? A painter? Or any sort of creative producer? Of course, it takes raw talent. And it usually presents from an early age. We hear this often, as is the case with Marrisa. But it takes an extra spark. And grit. And courage. And, of course, hard work. If anyone tells they got lucky in the fashion business, don't believe them. ABOUT MARRISA WILSON NY: Marissa Wilson, New York is a contemporary women's wear brand based out of New York. The idea behind this brand is that they want their customers to “wear their soul.” Marrisa, the creator and designer, is a first-generation Guyanese-American who uses the natural influences and inspiration of her Caribbean home as she hand-draws and hand-paints the prints that are eventually transformed into her unique designs. She puts a lot of love into each print she develops, as she really wants the wearer to be able to bring out their own personality through her bold colors and soft, easy silhouettes. Her company first launched in 2016. But in 2021, they started to show at New York Fashion Week and things really started to really evolve. HOW IT STARTED: Marissa wanted to be a fashion designer from a really young age. Her mom is a creative person, and she comes from an entrepreneurial family. She was raised in a family-owned business growing up. So, it didn't seem crazy to get out of school and start a business right away. When she was in the second grade, her mom was upholstering the cushions and curtains around their house, so there were little scraps of fabric all around and she started playing with them. Surrounded by her Barbies, she started draping and pinning and that's when her mom first taught her how to hand sew. She eventually went to school to study fashion, majoring in fashion design with a double minor in fashion merchandising and product development. She then went on to study under some of the best in the business, doing internships and undergrad work in the industry and gaining a lot of experience as she was building the idea of her business. She worked for companies such as J. Mendel and Oscar de la Renta, and has the affiliate experience, as well, with mass brands like DKNY, Calvin Klein, and hip brands like Rag and Bone. Having all these experiences in her back pocket, she made a point to take in everything that she could learn along the way for her own business. This really put her on the path to entrepreneurship. From being present in the design room, the fabric rooms and onto product development, she was able to really understand the entire supply chain process. “So, going from that process from how do you take a concept that you've developed into a design? How do you bring it to life, not just in that first sample, but also how to make it production-friendly, and how to make it so that other people can actually wear those clothes? This is what I learned early.” – Marissa Wison THE TARGET AUDIENCE: The MARRISA WILSOIN NY client is anyone who feels like they want to push the bounds of what they add to their wardrobe. This woman wants to wear something different, but they don't want it to be fussy, or have difficulty figuring out how to do that. Marrisa likes to make sure that the wearer feels they can be themselves and bring out their own shine and their own light through her clothes. She is intentional to design without ego. It's not about her creating a perfect archetype of who she wants to wear her clothes. What she really enjoys is when someone is trying on an interesting color or print they might not have tried before, and then there's a sort of ease when they think: Hmmm, this kind of thing works for me! The art is really through the textiles, she feels. Marissa loves interesting prints, embroidery techniques and beading. You might have a favorite pair of jeans or a favorite blazer that you might be able to pair her designs with. She hopes her clients can incorporate Marrisa Wilson NY into their existing wardrobes by allowing people to have the freedom to step outside the box by adding something really special, without the fear of going too far. DOWN TO BUSINESS: As an artist, Marrisa can always create spectacular print designs. But as a business-owner, she must consider production, supply and demand, and what customers are looking for. Issues like sizing, style trends, manufacturers, textile suppliers, sustainability, buyer demand, and buyer purchasing habits all factor into each and every creation. Marrisa credits a Made-to-Order business model on a part of her success. By allowing customers to choose which designs they want before they are manufactured allows her to collect information what her clients want. Why produce an entire season of styles without knowing what customers will buy? Instead, she puts her designs out there, and produces what her customers are indicating they want via pre-orders. Through this process she has learned things like the importance of deep sizing options. Her buyers have indicated size trends and demand well before production, so she knows exactly the size range she needs to produce. They have partnered with an agent overseas, who makes sure that all their brand values are carried throughout the product development. MARRISA WILSON NY works with factories that do small batches. These not massive factories. They work with mills that can take their smaller batch runs. Marrisa loves these relationships, because these are partners who are looking to grow with them, and who are doing it in a small, controlled, and sustainable way. WHAT ELSE? Marrisa and Holly spend the rest of this episode discussing her latest collection, with influences from her Guyanese heritage: think of tropical trees and palm trees, and an easy-breezy lifestyle. She is also planning her upcoming wedding (in Seville) and she in is NOT designing her own dress. #YASSSGURL And finally, Marrisa is already working on her 2024 collection, and consider what Fashion Week might bring. We cannot wait! In her final thoughts, Marrisa shares her truth bomb, and that is to “Dress for Your Soul.” We couldn't agree more. That's what we preach.

This episode is a conversation with Finnegan Shepard who is founder of Both& Apparel—a company that closed on one-million seed round and is pioneering non-binary fashion, starting with apparel for trans men. The company is powered by the belief that trans masculine, non-binary, and gender non-conforming people deserve gender joy through fashion. On March 31, 2023, Both&, launched their first global advertising campaign photographed by non-binary photographer Lydia Garrett of creative agency WongDoody. This campaign launch coincided with Trans Day Visibility and promoted the labels new denim line. The campaign is called “Boys, Boys, Boys” perhaps as a play on the phrase ‘boys will be boys,' which is often used to describe gendered stereotypes of masculine heteronormative behavior, except in this case, instead of depicting cismen, the campaign uses transmen to define masculinity and sex appeal—a clear inspiration coming from famed images of the 1990s Calvin Klein's underwear campaigns whose attractiveness was charged with classical ideas of traditional masculinity and whiteness. In the Both& Apparel campaign whiteness is replaced by ethnic diversity and the viewers gaze is displacing hypermasculinity by hypertransvisibility. The intention of the campaign is made explicit, it's all about sex appeal and being desired. Please join me as I talk with Finnegan via Zoom from his home in New Mexico. We talk about the growth of Both&, their global campaign, and dive into ideals of trans masculinity that no longer belong to cis men. #transfashion #transmasculinity #fashion #genderjoy #both& #finneganshepard --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/zara-korutz/message

Brooke Shields looks back on her childhood career with guest interviewer Tonya Mosley. When she was 11 months old, she was in soap commercials and print ads. At the age of 12, she starred as a child prostitute in the film Pretty Baby. In her teens, she modeled jeans for Calvin Klein and became a household name. The new Hulu documentary, Pretty Baby, examines how she was sexually objectified as a child and teen actress. Also, Ken Tucker reviews Lana Del Rey's new album which he says features risky, ambitious music.
In the late nineteen-seventies and into the eighties, Brooke Shields was one of the most famous and most controversial people in America. At age eleven, she appeared in the film “Pretty Baby,” playing a child prostitute; by fifteen she was in the heavy-breathing desert-island love story “Blue Lagoon.” She was the face of a series of ads for Calvin Klein jeans featuring notoriously smutty innuendo. Yet Shields herself—rather than the filmmakers and ad men who developed her roles—became the object of fascination and public reproach, as the new documentary “Pretty Baby: Brooke Shields,” premièring on Hulu, demonstrates in detail. Yet, if she was exploited by adults around her when she was young, Shields denies any sense of being a victim. In a conversation with Michael Schulman, she calls hypocrisy on models who criticize their industry. “You're making money, and you're selling something, and, in most cases, sex sells,” she says. “ ‘Oh, I'm being objectified.' You're a model! That's the point!”
