Fashion history is about more than pretty clothes. Dressed explores the incredibly rich and complex history behind the clothes we wear.

Best podcast on fashion that I've found

The content of these lessons is excellent. It's especially great to see that they're putting a spotlight on Elizabeth Keckley, a truly amazing woman. The hosts are fashion historians, not just "fashionistas," so their podcasts have real content. I am a subscriber and I am really enjoying this series.

Fashionopolis

I love your podcast especially the most recent two on sustainability. However I found it hypocritical to lead an episode with an endorsement for Fabletics - the antithesis of the the movement you were promoting. I understand you are running a business and sponsors are so important to the bottom line but before asking the public to buy garments made responsibly you should consider your contribution to fast fashion

The history of fashion is the history of civilization

Very well researched and performed. Before I started listening to this I didn’t understand how integral fashion is to historical events.

Highly recommend if you’re in the How’s and Why’s of fashion

Bonkersly educational, and also very much liked by people in the fashion industryDue to the wide range of topics not every episode may be for everyone, but at the same time, the depth of knowledge broadens everyone’s understanding

Presentism Much?

Like many other reviews have pointed out, the hosts are quite versed in fashion history and know it well. In all honesty, I’ve enjoyed many episodes, that accounts for the 1 star given. The first season was good, but it has gone downhill since. The blatant cultural bias, specifically presentism, leaves no grace for context. And the audio quality of interviews and live recordings have been so hard on my ears that I delete them immediately.Compounding these issues with the prevalence of political statements, after today’s episode, I’ve unsubscribed. Some of us do not believe in prenatal genocide.

Unique History

I love this podcast but usually find the interviews not as interesting as the hosts original research and usually the audio quality is unbearable. This podcast was a favorite but just stopped listening now that most of the episodes are interviews

WW 1 episode

I wish I could listen to this episode but the speakers’ audio is awful. I hope part 2 is a little easier on the ears.

Interesting podcasst

I like the podcast and it's very informative. My only issue is that part of the episodes seem to be geared toward people who have a higher level of fashion knowledge than I do. Other than that, it's great.

Boring

I really liked the first season, but the second season is painfully boring. The interview format isn’t as effective, and I lose interest real quick. I do like the fhm episodes though.

I Keep Trying

I want to like this podcast. The conversations about Worth and fashion houses through the decades are interesting. However, these ladies are not seated in historical knowledge (as other people have noted). Inaccuracies and some light plagiarism abound. Some of the information about voting on the 19th amendment was lifted straight out of a RadioLab episode, and Robert K did a better job with it.I love parts of their episodes so much. Discussions about fashion collections and when they talk about the fashion mysteries are highlights for me because they *really* know their topic. It’s harder to listen to when it’s clear that they never made it past basic history classes and don’t know how to frame things properly. A little fact checking and some “how to pronounce this” would improve the podcast significantly.They are experts in their fields and it shows, both for the betterment of the show and sometimes it’s detriment. Keep going and improving!

It was great until

I enjoyed the history of some of the topics brought up, but then it became very biased and one sided. Bummer.

Fabulous

The episode on Dior was wonderful - and a great preparation for visiting the exhibition at the V&A.

My absolute favorite podcast

I am a lay fashion nerd. These two take it to a different level. Their incredible knowledge is peppered with interviews, fun facts, interesting topics and down to earth relatable explanations.

Meh, depends on you think about it....

I’m a big fan of history and fashion and this is only part of historical fashion, ( I know they can’t fit in everything but the could put in more ) but this is mostly female clothing! I know the host are girls but I play this in the car with my mother and father, and he is kinda left out. But on the other hand, this is very fun and interesting, but a bit to much chatter. So two things. One ☝️ try talk about girl AND boy fashion, and two ✌️less chat, more scat!

Delivery lacking

I really enjoy this podcast but have found that I can only listen to two or three episodes consecutively - hence the reason I am still listening to season one. I had hoped season two would be better but from the comments it seems that it’s not. While the hosts are very accomplished in their field, their delivery is juvenile in their tone (as many have commented, stop with the “upspeak”) and the opinionated commentary inserted into each episode - no need for comments about lack of diversity in fashion in the Givenchy episode, for example - takes away from the topic. (It’s as if they want to ensure the listeners know they think there should be greater diversity in magazines - we know. We agree. We’re not listening to this to debate that topic. And the mispronunciations (in both French and English) are cringeworthy. Its clear they put a lot of research and effort into each show. But the delivery of that research is hard to get through.

Hit or miss

I usually find the show very interesting but it’s really fallen off lately. The fashion history mystery episodes are too short and awkward and the regular episodes don’t always flow. I was really disappointed this week revolves around “pride” month. I don’t care what people do in their personal lives or how they feel yet it’s being shoved in our faces constantly. They also seem to talk about men with a negative tone and put woman on a pedestal. Honestly just very tired or all the political talking points we’re bombarded with by all media these days. If they continue with this narrative I’m gunna have to stop listening.

Too many inaccuracies

I really wanted to like this & recommend it to my Fashion Brand Management major daughter. Listened to the Tuxedo episode first & there were so many statements that wee obviously incorrect it made me question all the other statements. (simple ex: Department stores "make you" tell them the high school you go to and "will not sell you" a dress if someone from that school already bought it? No - after 3 daughters recently graduating from high school I know that's not true. Might be true some places & some times but the way they stated it is just not true.) All the *wrong* along with their silly, girlish delivery means I can't recommend it to my daughter & her cohorts & college club.

The guests are where it’s at

I love history and I love historic fashion so I was really excited to check out this podcast. The hosts can be a little dry at times and one of the hosts voice is a little grating to me. I really like when they have guests on because the guests are usually excited and passionate about what they’re talking about, so it makes for an interesting episode. They pick fun topics for this podcast, so I keep listening but it’s not something I instantly download every week.
