Garmology podcast: The way of Cabourn – With Nigel Cabourn (S05/E22 #122)

It’s been a long time coming, but this week finally sees iconic British designer Nigel Cabourn guest Garmology for a wide-ranging and openhearted chat about why he really got into fashion design, his inspirations and heroes, the ups and downs of life and business, his love of travelling, meeting people and collecting vintage garments, the collection that never happened, and being taught fitness the traditional way. Oh, and comparing his designs to Mr Potato Head?

Warning: Nigel does swear occasionally and the sound quality is dodgy at times, but it does improve again.

You can find Nigel on Instagram as @nigel_cabourn.
