Are you a fashionista?  Do your friends ask you for fashion advice?  Do you keep up with all the fashion news and love talking about it?

If you answered yes to these, then it’s time for you to get a fashion podcast!  This may sound like a fun idea to you, but you may think it’s too unattainable.  Luckily, that is not true.

You can definitely have a podcast.  You may even have a podcast that is so successful you could make money from it (more on that later).

You will just need to figure a few things out and get a few things first.  So let’s start going over that.

What Is Your Unique Focus?

One thing you’ll want to figure out before you begin is your unique focus.  And while this can evolve over time as you start recording episodes, you’ll want a rough idea of what your podcast is about.

You could make it about fashion in general.  But you might want a more specific focus.  For example, you might want to talk about fashion industry news.  Maybe you like discussing sustainable fashion.  The possibilities are practically endless!

What’s Your Format?

In addition to figuring out what your podcast will be about, you also need to think about the format.  For example, do you want to have a co-host or co-hosts?  Or do you just want to do the podcast by yourself?  Do you want special guests?  Do you want to have seasons that discuss a specific topic (such as an event in fashion history) or do you want to have episodes that deal with something different every time?  Now is the time to start thinking about that.

What’s Your Podcast’s Name?

Now that you know what your podcast is about, the hosts, etc., it’s time to name it!  You can really flex your creative muscles here and it is obviously your choice.  But in general, I think it’s best for your podcast’s name to reflect what your podcast is about.  When people are scrolling through Apple, Spotify, IHeartRadio, etc., and they see your title, it’s great if they know what it is about.  That way, the right audience can find your podcast.  Because if the title is appealing to them, chances are your podcast is appealing to them and you’ve got yourself a new listener.

Examples of podcasts where you can guess what the podcast is about from the title include Dressed: The History of Fashion (fashion history), In Vogue: The 2000s (fashion history from the 2000s), Fashion Grunge Podcast (1990s fashion), Fashion Crimes Podcast (discussion of terrible style choices), etc.

But you can go in other directions, of course.  You could include your name in the podcast title.  You could go for a play on words, like the podcasts Fashion Your Seatbelt and Road Dress Travelled do.  Really, the choice is yours!

Will You Make Your Podcast A Business?

Remember when I said earlier that you could make money from your podcast?  Well, you definitely can; we talk about ways to make money from your podcast here.  This can lead to this becoming a wonderful side hustle for you – or perhaps even your main income source.

But in order to do this, you will need to make sure you are earning money legally.  What I mean by that is that you may need to register your podcast as a business; you will need to look into rules and regulations for wherever you live.

If you do decide to form a business, you should consider getting an LLC.  An LLC is a great way to protect your new business legally.  I have started an LLC every time I have opened a new business.  We go over the advantages and disadvantages of starting an LLC here.

What Tools Do You Need to Start Your Podcast?

Starting a podcast is not quite as simple as just grabbing your phone and recording what you have to say.  There are tools you’ll need if you want your podcast to sound professional.  You’ll need editing software.  We go over everything you need to start a podcast here.


Starting a fashion podcast can be a fun (and profitable) endeavor.  Once you read this blog, you are ready to start recording.  Good luck!
