MODTV TOP PODCAST Highsnobiety
Video might have killed the radio star, but recently talk radio has made a comeback in popular culture thanks to the internet phenomenon of podcasts.

We are grateful to the editors to this glowing review of our show:
MODTV Fashion Video Podcast (Fashion)
Behind-the-scenes at Fashion Weeks around the world.
What’s the deal?
MODTV is the go-to in online fashion hubs, providing behind-the-scenes, editorial, and branded content centering around current labels, Fashion Week happenings, and the designers, models, and editors of the moment. The MODTV podcast is part of the site’s video series with a focused mission: each episode goes backstage at a different runway show, exploring a certain theme or aspect of the presentation.
The show has no host per se, but each episode follows a certain fashion personality as they navigate backstage at a show: it could be anyone from designers like Jason Wu or Karl Lagerfeld, or models like Gigi Hadid, Cara Delevingne and Rosie Huntington-Whitely. Even Rihanna has made an appearance.
Why should I care?
MODTV helps to place Fashion Week in a new light. Where once an invite to Fashion Week was a golden ticket, now anyone can have both on-site and backstage access to the most coveted shows. The effect is profoundly humanizing, and it presents both the clothing and the people behind it in the way they were meant to be shown: in real life.
Where should I start?
Our favourites include a look at Karl Lagerfeld’s recent show for Chanel Spring 2015 and a backstage view of Alexander Wang showing in New York.
