Tommy Hilfiger, through its People’s Place Program, and Kimberly Jenkins’ Fashion and Race Database are working with Pineapple Street Studios on a five-part podcast series titled, “The Invisible Seam: Unsung Stories of Black Culture and Fashion.” It will be hosted by Jenkins, with the first episode premiering on April 20. In a statement, Jenkins said that this kind of partnership “is a game-changer, because it shows what’s possible when industry leaders listen and collaborate with those of us doing the work to educate and advocate for a more diverse and socially responsible fashion system. Fashion education and research is often isolated in the fashion system, so I hope that other fashion brands will take notes from what Randy Cousin and the Tommy Hilfiger People’s Place Program are producing with us.” Fashionista Inbox
