Podcasts.

Podcasts are a collection of digital audio files that are easily downloadable to your computer or phone. They mainly come in the form of episodes hosted by countless creatives and discuss almost any topic you could think of.

Today, we would love to introduce to you Fashion Podcasts.

Fashion podcasts provide a platform for fashion experts, designers, stylists, brands and many others to share the multiple facets of fashion that are not always seen from the runway. It's where the other side of the fashion industry comes to life. 

From learning about the history of fashion, to in depth conversations with fashion experts in diverse spaces, to the economics behind the multi-billion dollar industry, the slew of information to be gathered from fashion podcasts in their 20 - 60minute episodes is endless. 

Now, fashion holds a dear place in Bôhten’s heart. As a black-owned company, we not only seek to compete with and provide the best of the best in the industry, but we aim to consistently learn from our community in the fashion business to continue to build and diversify the space. Therefore, we asked team members Elorm Amankwa and Oku Tetteh - Bôhten Retail Account Specialist and Creative producer respectively - to recommend the best fashion podcasts one can start listening to to keep abreast with creative and diverse Fashion news and content.
