🚨 *TRIGGER WARNING* 🚨 - This podcast contains topics of: child pornography and grooming. 

In this episode of the Fashademix, Laura and Sophie have a meaningful conversation about childhood experiences and how they have impacted their buying decisions and as well as how they handle day to day pressures.

They also discuss in depth the catastrophic error made by the luxury fashion house Balenciaga. For over a century, the high fashion brand has been synonymous with wearable luxury, fluid tailoring, and in more recent years – Kim Kardashian. However, after several atrocious styling decisions in November earlier this year, Balenciaga is now being uttered in the same breath as child pornography, grooming, and, even Satan. What does this mean for the future of the brand. 

They get to know M&S with their recent Christmas advert calendar and look forward to the new year and what lies ahead for The Fashademix! 

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Love Laura, Sophie and Producer Pete!
