S2 EP10 Fashion Through Emotional Intelligence

The ⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠Big Dress Energy⁠⁠⁠⁠ ⁠Podcast ultimately explores how you can harness the principles of fashion psychology to upgrade your look – and dress in a way that feels completely authentic.

In our final episode of season two, we’re thrilled to welcome Caryn Franklin MBE as our special guest, not only a former classmate from Shakaila’s Fashion Psychology masters but a British fashion legend and identity commentator.

We explore various thought-provoking subjects, such as the historical impact of the clothes show, the portrayal of women in media and its influence on power dynamics, the male gaze in fashion photography, using style for self-expression and empowerment, and the evolving role of luxury fashion in today’s society. Join us for this insightful discussion!

If you’ve made it this far thank you so much for joining us on this amazing journey where we get into the nitty-gritty behind fashion, style and beauty.
