Dressed: The History of Fashion

Have you ever wondered why we wear what we do, or why certain fashion trends remain popular over long periods of time while other fads fade away? These questions and more are explored in the podcast Dressed: The History of Fashion. Dressed, which is hosted by April Callahan and Cassidy Zachary, discusses fashion trends through a historical lens and often includes interviews with historians and fashion professionals about the subject. In honor of the 100th anniversary of the passing of the 19th amendment to the U.S. Constitution, one of the most recent shows is entitled, "Styling the American Suffragist," and includes an interview with fashion historian Raissa Bretana "about the relationship between fashion and the 20th century suffrage movement." Other recent topics covered in the show include the history of men's' facial hair, an interview with "Dress Detective" Amber Butchart, and the evolution of high heels (which were worn by men before women). Dressed episodes typically run about an hour in length. Listeners have the option to stream the show directly from the website or listen via your favorite podcast app.
