6/5/2024
Henrietta Rix is the co-founder of the womenswear brand Rixo. Founded in 2015, it has quickly become a favorite for its gorgeous prints, timeless silhouettes, high-quality silk, and non-designer price tags.

To that end, they’ve opened up a flagship store on King’s Road in London that contains a coffee shop, bar, bridal boutique, tailoring bar, and rental collection. To align with the brand’s aim to produce “future vintage” pieces, it also tracks several sustainability goals to lower its impact on the environment. Henrietta is here to discuss the origins of Rixo’s signature prints and what it takes to grow a brand without outside investment. Plus, hear what her favorite pieces for summer are.

Gaby Dalkin: What’s Gaby Cooking Blogger, Best-Selling Author, and Founder of Dalkin & Co.

6/3/2024
Gaby Dalkin is widely known as one of the original food bloggers, but before she was running What’s Gaby Cooking, she began her career in fashion PR. But when the economy crashed in 2008, she lost her job and decided to enroll in culinary school. From that moment, her food career snowballed: On the same day she started classes, she also began cataloging her journey on her now-famous blog called What’s Gaby Cooking, and only a few weeks into school, she booked a job as a personal chef. She spent the next few years honing her culinary and pastry skills, working as a private chef for celebs like Jessica Simpson, mastering food styling, and building her growing blog. Then, in 2013, she received her first book deal and leaped into working on What’s Gaby Cooking full-time. Today, her blog remains wildly popular. She also has her own spice-blend company, Dalkin & Co, and has written five books, the newest of which, What’s Gaby Cooking: Grilling All the Things, just came out on May 21.

Who What Wear with Hillary Kerr: Julia Fox on Her New E! Show OMG Fashun, Upcycling, and Keeping Creative Doors Open

5/22/2024
Between writing her New York Times best-selling memoir Down the Drain, dropping a single and accompanying music video with the same title, and hosting and producing a brand-new reality competition show on E! called OMG Fashun, Julia Fox continues to creatively one-up herself. Since her breakout role in Uncut Gems in 2019, Fox has continued to make headlines for her undeniably creative fashion choices—many of which are products of her taking a pair of scissors to the random materials she finds in her apartment. Now, she's bringing that same mentality to OMG Fashun, where she challenges designers to create sustainable high-fashion looks by upcycling unconventional materials. She's here to discuss working with her co-host Law Roach, why she champions up-and-coming designers, and how having her son freed her to dress only for herself.

Allison Messner: Yardzen Co-Founder and CEO

4/22/2024
In 2017, the outdoor space surrounding Allison Messner’s home in Northern California was destroyed by a devastating wildfire. In the aftermath, Allison and her husband decided to hire a landscape designer to help them rebuild their green space, but they quickly realized how difficult, long, and expensive the process was going to be. The two began developing an idea to make the process more efficient and accessible by incorporating new technology, and in 2018, they launched Yardzen, a digital landscape design and build platform. Today, the company operates in all 50 states with a network of hundreds of designers and architects. But before Allison disrupted the landscape industry, she reported as a journalist in Alaska, worked at a prestigious PR firm, was CMO of the tech company OpenDNS when it was acquired by Cisco for $635 million, and even started her own venture capital firm.
