As Couture collection showings in London and Paris come to a halt, style-conscious people may be yearning for a touch of escapism to distract from increasing hours indoors. Good podcasts can provide a chance to refuel the creative imagination. (and a window to the world during these strange times.) 

There is an abundance of fashion-focused shows that share gripping bits of history, explore a designer’s process, and even feature in-depth convos with industry insiders. From examining the closet as an archive and discovering who actually made the mini skirt famous, there’s a bit of aural inspiration for every fashion enthusiast variety.
