Fashion, Image and Influence with Robin Givhan

Fashion, Image and Influence with Robin Givhan

Fashion critic Robin Givhan and Kojo talk about fashion's gender divide, status as art, and competitive dressing.

Many people think of fashion as a realm dominated by women, but in fact, men hold many of the industry's most of powerful positions. Kojo and Robin Givhan consider what that gender divide means, and the fine line between art, marketing, and exploitation that designers walk. They'll also discuss why men are taking a greater interest in fashion--including in the world of professional sports.
