To make a long story short, we recorded an episode of Audio by Vencer NY while in Paris, the (brand new) batteries in my recorder died after an hour of recording, and the audio file is nowhere to be found… Yeah, that sucked, BUT we’re running it back in the next few weeks, so keep your eyes and ears peeled for that. In the meantime, here’s an introduction to your favorite fashion critic’s favorite fashion critic, Bibby Gregory.
Who are you?
Bibby Gregory, stylist & creative consultant.
Why does your opinion matter?
It’s informed and unbiased, based on fact, and not emotion.
When is the last time you were moved by a runway show?
Pyer Moss SS19, Celine SS19, and CDG SS19. (All for different reasons.)
What are the three biggest problems in fashion today?
0. Social Media
Are the Black September mag covers a cheap ploy or signs of a real change happening in the fashion world?
It’s not real. If the industry wanted to be diverse, we would have diversity, we wouldn’t be asking and looking for it. Fashion is built on classism, elitism, and racism.

My MacBook keeps me informed—I produce so much work on it. My MacBook powers where I’m going while my Air Jordan 1s remind me of where I’m from. I have a fur coat my grandmother always wore and it’s a fixture in my wardrobe. It’s a constant reminder of who she was and why I am. She was the best-dressed woman I have ever known.
