“Dressed: The History Of Fashion” is the podcast that explores the social and cultural histories behind the who, what, when, and why we get dressed. Cassidy Zachary and April Calahan interview guests regarding iconic black women who revolutionised fashion and the fashioning white femininity: the ethnic masquerade of modern fashion are one of the hottest episodes uploaded, along with discussions on topics such as fashion exhibitions, the symbolism of colour and men’s heels.
