Fashion designer Jasmine Chong was a contestant on TV reality show Making the Cut.

Notes on the episode

This week, host Karen Han talks to stylist Jasmine Chong who you may know from the reality show Making the cut. Before founding her own label, Jasmine worked for some of the most influential names in fashion. In the interview, Jasmine explains the profound influence her mother, a fashion designer, has had on her life, her creative vision and her career.

After the interview, Karen and co-host Isaac Butler discuss the challenges of unraveling how people develop their aesthetics and what their aspiring leaders are. (Spoiler: Isaac loves Brian Cox very much Succession cardigan.)

In the exclusive Slate Plus segment, Karen asks Jasmine about “straight sizes” and how the fashion industry remains focused on a small subsection of sizes and body types.
