Why fashion is a form of self-care, with Kat Farmer

Kat Farmer, AKA @doesmybumlook40, is loved on social media for her honest but upbeat posts, whether that’s laughing at herself in an unflattering outfit in a high street changing room, or getting raw and emotional sharing the challenges of parenting a teenager with autism. Now, with her new book Get Changed: Finding The New You Through Fashion already a Sunday Times bestseller, she talks to Gemma about how what we wear is linked with our sense of personal identity and how so many of us lose track of who we are - especially as we get older and find our time and energy taken up with work and family. She shares some practical tips about finding your fashion tribe, talks about her own experiences of menopause and getting older (and why you should wear what you want at any age) and her guilt at not realising her daughter was coeliac. This is a hugely positive listen for anyone who wears clothes. Ultimately, Kat’s message is that at the end of the day, we all deserve to like the person we see looking back at us in the mirror - and she wants to help get us there.
