Anna recommends listening to Stevie Nicks singing Wild Heart getting her make up done as you read this.
Almost no one thinks they’re a fashion person, and yet fashion is a culture that’s everywhere, something we’re all apart of. We use fashion as a tool to craft our identity, to sync our internal selves with the external.
In this episode, we ask what it means to be a ‘fashion person’ with Anna Cosgrave, activist and social entrepreneur, founder of the Repeal Project. Anna started the project by producing jumpers to give visibility to the problems created by Ireland’s restrictive abortion laws. We have a theory the initiative is an example of fashion tools at work.
After a quick coffee in Two Pups on Francis street we sat in the Trinity FM studio to discuss how our formative influences formed our understanding of fashion, it’s cultural meaning and whether we consider ourselves ‘fashion people’.
