Find the pitch form below, but you should read this first:
American Fashion Podcast is a show about the fashion industry, with an emphasis on the importance of changing it to be more environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable.
Our listeners are primarily industry insiders, including a broad spectrum of roles from executives to creative directors to atelier workers, manufacturers, consultants, independent designers, and students. We typically feature stories that we feel would interest them and help them better understand the industry and how it is changing. We occasionally go completely off the wall, so don’t let that scare you. Just know that we don’t produce the show for consumers. So, “style” and “how to dress” are not really primary topics.
Roughly 1/4 of the pitches we receive emphasize that the brand reaching out has a female CEO. However, in the fashion industry (unlike in tech, where these pitches tend to originate) this is really not that unusual (except at the biggest fashion companies, where the lack of female leadership really is a problem) and this will not on its own justify scheduling an interview. In your pitch, we need to hear about something interesting for people in the fashion business to take time out of their busy schedules and listen to our show for 30-60 minutes. If you want to talk about your own company, please tell us what are you doing that is unique or different.
Our main studio is located in Manhattan, and we rarely do telephone interviews, but please don’t let that stop you from reaching out to set up a potential interview at some point in the future when you might happen to be in New York City or we are heading your way. If you are out of town and want to schedule an interview immediately, we may consider it if you are willing to cover our travel costs.
