AO Podcast

We host our very own ‘Fashion Vanguards’ podcast series, which aims to open minds, share knowledge, listen to opinions and ignite conversations.

Our third and final installment in our ‘protest in fashion’ series answers whether fashion will once again ride the waves of subculture to bring about trends more subversive and iconic than eras past. It’s widely accepted that the ‘bubble up’ effect from youth subculture has over the years validated the industry’s presence as an expressed/applied art form. Yet in a postmodernist world where subcultures are forced into obscurity, we discuss whether fashion’s incessant appropriation of subcultures could in fact be the catalyst to its untimely demise and how the industry will struggle to remain relevant to the next generation without it.
