Meet Teri Agins

Fashion Commentator Extraordinaire

If you enjoy getting behind the fashion scenes to understand both the big business of fashion and how to make fashion work for you, find an hour to spend with one of contemporary fashion’s remarkable chroniclers, Teri Agins.  

Teri’s illustrious career detailing the rise and fall of fashion houses as a Wall Street Journal investigative reporter led to writing the books that explain the current fashion scene: The End of Fashion: How Marketing Changed the Clothing Business Forever (1999) – still a page turner - and Hijacking the Runway: How Celebrities are Stealing the Spotlight from Fashion Designers (2014).  In addition to the big stories, Teri has shared thousands of small, personal style stories that unfolded in her weekly WSJ style column, “Ask Teri.”

Our conversation ranges freely, covering Teri’s fascinating career, the trends that democratized fashion, and Teri’s tips for negotiating the post-Covid, DIY shopping scene. From sourcing ideas and inspiration to naming the perfect strapless bra, Teri demystifies how to discern and refine your personal style.  

Teri walks her walk, and after listening, you’ll find your own path more easily!
