Rodeo Drive - The Podcast Trailer

Rodeo Drive, now world-renowned, began as little more than a bridle path. Pioneering designers, hoteliers and entrepreneurs transformed it into a rival to New York’s Fifth Avenue -- with sun, palm trees and Hollywood sizzle. How did it happen? Is it a street or a state of mind? How does it adapt to change? Rodeo Drive –The Podcast brings you the stories of the people who imagined the inimitable, three-block stretch in Beverly Hills, bringing showmanship and glamour to retail excellence. Tune in to hear host Bronwyn Cosgrave in conversation with fashion and design luminaries, retailers, and chroniclers including Rose Apodaca, Nicolas Bijan, Nicola Cagliata, Michael Chow, Kathy Gohari, Robert Hayman, Stephen Jones OBE, Dame Zandra Rhodes, Cameron Silver, and many more, about the intoxicating combination of fashion, art and entertainment that put Rodeo Drive on the map – and what they envision for the future of the famous luxury thoroughfare.


The first series of eight episodes will be released twice monthly beginning May 29, 2020.
