Fashion history, diversity in fashion, and Afro-Latino multiracial life with Jasmine Helm, Ep. 157

Ep. 157: Jasmine Helm is a fashion historian.  She grew up in La Puente, CA and New York City and has studied fine art, art history, fashion and museum studies on both coasts. Jasmine has also worked as curator and archivist in Los Angeles and New York. She is passionate about exploring the cross-cultural intersections between history, art, material culture, fashion, and people. Her current research focuses on the dress and textile culture of the Afro-Indigenous groups in the Bluefields coastal region of Nicaragua.  In 2015, Jasmine co-founded Unravel Podcast, as a means to fill a gap in the canon and lexicon of fashion. She and her co-hosts want to educate the public about the importance of fashion in history and daily life and inspire conversation and discussion. Their goals include: 1) Collaborating with experts in their field, to expand the conversation, 2) Speaking beyond the canon of traditional fashion media and history, 3) Being on the “frontline” of solidifying fashion history as a serious subject to study and learn. Their purpose is to be a conduit for understanding fashion and its place in the world in the past as well as the present.
