“Fashion Reverie Talks” Episode 5

OK, I know you have heard the adage, “five is the charm.” No, that’s “three is the charm.” Well, how about, “to practice five things under all circumstances constitutes perfect virtue; these five are gravity, generosity of soul, sincerity, earnestness, and kindness.” Confucius said that!!

Am I saying that episode 5 of “Fashion Reverie Talks” has perfect virtue? No, I am not saying that, but it is pretty good!!

This episode of “Fashion Reverie Talks” includes a fall 2021 bridal roundup discussion with co-hosts Carl Ayers, Tijana Ibrahimovic, and Cicily Daniels. The co-hosts discussed the fall 2021 bridal collections of Lihi Hod, Ines di Santo, and VERDIN New York. Additionally, fashionreverie.com’s associate fashion editor Cameron Rose discussed her fall 2020 fragrance picks.

In a special segment R&B artist Russell Taylor discussed his call-to-action song “Wake Up.” Editor-in-chief William S. Gooch conducted the interview. Russell Taylor also detailed his other music projects and his desire to stay an independent artist.

As we do in every episode, there is fashion news which this week includes the passing of fashion icon Kenzo Takada, June Ambrose’s new job as Puma’s creative collaborator, and Nyle DiMarco’s documentary, “Deaf U.” True to form, “Fashion Reverie Talks” continues to be an expansion of everything we do on fashionreverie.com.

Can you believe it? The second episode of “Fashion Reverie Talks” is now live. Who would’ve believed that when we started this journey five months ago that we would see it come to fruition so quickly?

That said; the second episode of “Fashion Reverie Talks” details some interesting fashion news—Jay Manuel’s new Book “The Wig, the Bitch, and the Meltdown,” Michele Morrone’s new gig as the face of Guess Men, and the high price Michael Jordan’s sneakers demanded at a Chrystie’s auction. All examined with depth and nuance.

This episode contains a wonderful segment with associate editor Kristopher Fraser about “The Return of Hood by Air.” Fashion Reverie’s managing editor Carl Ayers does a thorough job explains what Pre-Fall means in the fashion industry and to consumers in his segment “What is Pre-Fall”—he also details some Pre-Falll 2020 trends. And our celebrity style editor Tijana Ibrahimovic takes an interesting approach to stylish celebrities that have great style that have new fall 2020 television shows. Tijana’s segment “Celebrities with Great Style That Star in New Fall 2020 Series,” co-hosted by Cicily Daniels has lots of humor and charm.
