Dickinson Wears Prada Podcast: A Look Inside

Hello all,

And welcome to the Dickinson Wears Prada Podcast, hosted by Brad Hansell and Nikolas Mikelinich.

Through the course of our podcast we will be discussing the Italian fashion house Gomito a Gomito, that gives work to female inmates at Dozza prison in Bologna. We have interviews with both inmates and workers involved with Gomito a Gomito, talking about creative freedom, marketing, their impact on the city of Bologna, and how COVID-19 has effected them. We even discuss the possibility of collaboration in the making of an article about their handmade masks, a topical item that we think needs more press.

We invite you to take a listen!
