Posted in Special Posts, and Transcripts

Em: Hi there, everyone. This is Emily Davison, co-founder with Laura Legendary, of the Fashionability Channel, here to share with you more about what you can expect to hear from us.

LL: And this is Laura, to invite you to help us grow the Fashionability Channel by telling your friends and followers about what we have to offer. So, Emily, why don’t you start…tell everyone about some of our fun ideas for the channel!

Em: One of the many segments you can look forward to will be called Changing Perceptions. It will feature interviews with inspirational people who are revolutionizing the fashion industry and making it an inclusive place for people with disabilities.

LL: “In The Loop,” will be a segment featuring the Fit Loop fitness guru marana Weber, who will discuss steps to achieving fitness for anyone, at any level, but especially for people who are blind or visually impaired. We’ll also add some nutritional insights for anyone who wants to ensure optimal health through better food choices.

Em: “The Tricks of the Trade” will be a series in which cosmetics and make up experts and enthusiasts will explore and explain some of the key tricks and tips for how you can achieve great looks with your make up.

LL: In a segment we’re calling, “Bad-ass Abilities,”Alan Chaulet, owner of BadAss Ability, will discuss wheelchair accessories and wheelchair sports apparel.

Em: “Fashionability Life Hacks” will be a series aimed at focusing on giving people with different disabilities advice and guidance on how to access fashion, from shopping to choosing the right clothing. This is a series aimed at explaining everything you need to know about making fashion accessible for your individual needs.

LL: In my segment called, “On The Job – Careerwear that works,” I’ll be discussing what to wear while on the job…or looking for one.

Em: “The Language of Fashion” will be a series that looks into what style means and how peoples dress sense can articulate something about them. The series will discuss different cultural perspectives of fashion with guest speakers for each episode.

LL: In “Fashionability 101,” Both Emily and I, along with special guests, will offer up some education as to some really basic aspects of fashion and style, with accessibility in mind. Thorough descriptions of basic shapes, necklines, sleeve lengths, textiles, skirt lengths, vocabulary and entry-level terminology associated with apparel, makeup, haircare, skincare, accessories, and so on. Learn along with us.

EM: Are you “Loving The Skin You’re In?” This will be a series that talks about body confidence and how to make the most of your body with guest speakers to add some 411.

LL: “Shoe be do be do,” Will feature various experts who will tread softly on the topic of footwear.

Em: “Skincare S O S” Have a rather bad bout of acne? Your skin is feeling rather worse for wear this Autumn? You want to know how to make your skin look and feel amazing? Well never fear for the Skincare S OS series is here. This will be a series that looks at how you can achieve perfect skin for your skin type with the help of the series that will look at different aspects of skin conditions from aging skin, to troublesome spots to environmentally triggered skin problems.
If your skin is in need of some TLC, this is the series for you.

LL: Finally, no list of topics would be complete without a discussion of “All That Glitters.” We’ll talk about jewelry and gems, tips on how to buy, how to wear, and how to care for your beautiful collection. We’ll review how to identify all types of metals, stones, components, settings, styles and trends.

Em: These are just examples of the type of content we are currently planning to air on Fashionability. However, as we evolve, grow and change as a result of listener feedback, you might hear many other topics.

LL: Remember, if you have a suggestion, topic idea, or just want to show us some love, please send us an email at fashionability channel at gmail.com.

Em: Stay tuned! Bye for now!
