Since it’s always fashion week somewhere, the time has come to talk about the fashion show. If you’ve ever wondered how these unusual events come to life, this episode is for you. Perhaps you’ve stopped in your tracks (or feed scroll) at evidence of a particularly spectacular show or uniquely intricate set. At times these performance aspects can become even more memorable than the fashion itself. Well, chances are a man named Alexandre de Betak with a headphone backstage was calling the shots. De Betak's job is to travel the world year-round dreaming up the most extrordinary sets and parties, catwalks and choreographies.In fact, over the past 25 years, the “Fellini of Fashion” has orchestrated over 1,500 fashion sows from the helm of his international production company Bureau Betak. Not only does the producer come up with each universe to compliment his clients’ collections, he is also known for gaining access to some of the world’s most celebrated and protected landmarks in which to do so. This past summer there was the spectacular pink-carpeted Jacquemus show somewhere in a lavender filed in Provence (that could only be found by following an exact GPS location). Or a show by the same designer at Paris' Picasso Museum a few seasons back, an unprecedented feat that no doubt required a certain amount of arm-twisting among the Paris establishment. Ditto for the Dior mirror box de Betak built in Moscow’s Red Square, the one he constructed in the center of the Louvre, or in the garden of the Rodin Museum… locations most creatives can only dream of taking over.As your hosts sit down with de Betak to discuss his unique and largely self-invented career trajectory, they also ask the show maestro to speculate on where the very concept of the fashion show is going next, on why the bi-annual four-city circuit as we know it should really be rethought, and how to properly integrate sustainability if he can help it. Which, of course, he can.

As Vestiaire Collective celebrates its 10th anniversary, bolstered by news that the resell industry is now growing 1.5 times faster than the fast-fashion industry, Monica and Camille sit down with the founders of the luxury second-hand website to unpack the workings of the booming circular economy. Back when Vestiaire entered the market, second hand shopping was very much a hit-and-miss affair: only the more persistent vintage shoppers were likely to strike gold. But Vestiaire Collective was to change that by building an inspirational community-led platform were fashion lovers and savvy shoppers can find anything from Isabel Marant’s popular Dicker boots (Camille’s first purchase on the site) to Hermes and Chanel's most covetable handbags. From their early days as entrepreneurs to working their way to the top of the eco-comm chain, Fanny Moisant and Sophie Hersan reveal some of the biggest challenges faced (like having to change your brand’s name) and explain why we should all be jumping on the circular economy bandwagon. They also talk FNF through vintage trends and how the resell industry is even influencing the first sale industry the days.

In this episode of Fashion: No Filter your hosts get a studio visit from Mugler’s brilliant new Creative Director Casey Cadwallader. After a topical chat on whether politics merits a place in the fashion world (or perhaps, whether fashion has the right to take a political stance), Casey tells Monica and Camille about his recent actions — including diverse casting, dressing Cardi B, and creating that exceptionally constructed “naked-suit” for Bella Hadid — which of course speak louder than words.Casey also takes the girls on a trip down memory lane, explaining his journey from 12-year-old goldsmith in New Hampshire, to architect, to Creative Director of a major Parisian fashion house, before addressing the joys of body-conscious dressing, and why choosing to look sexy can indeed go hand-in-hand with modern feminism. Tune in for an inspiring young designer’s journey, a hilarious first-hand account of Beyonce’s sartorial needs, and, of course, if you want to know, the secrets to constructing derriere-hoisting hosiery.
