There’s no denying we’re spending more and more time with ourselves these days, so if you’ve never dipped your toes into the wide world of podcasts, now might be the time. Even if you’re already a fan, there are so many great style-focused options on the scene right now, it’s more than likely you’re looking for inspiration for something new.
It’s no surprise that some of our favourite fashion houses, designers and influencers have launched their own podcasts in recent times allowing us a glimpse into their fabulous lives while educating us on all things fashion.
From Dior to Chanel, MOJEH’s round up of fashion-forward podcasts are perfect for adding a hint of chic while washing up or taking a socially-distanced walk.

The first episode saw actor Carey Mulligan and director Emerald Fennell give an intimate glimpse into their close relationship as they discuss working together on the film Promising Young Woman and how their friendship has evolved since they first met as teenagers. There’s plenty more where that came from, though…
