ZALORA Talks Halal Beauty, Plastic Surgery, Beauty Standards, And Stereotypes
ZALORA remains strong in championing the beauty and lifestyle trends and issues being experienced by their consumers through the third season of their podcast, ZALORA Talks.
Last July 1, 2022, ZALORA, the leading fashion and lifestyle e-retailer in Southeast Asia, announced that they were coming back with a new season of ZALORA Talks, a podcast they started last May 2021. ZALORA is the first in its field within the Asian region to start a podcast show which aims to highlight the latest trends in fashion, beauty, lifestyle, and culture from an Asian perspective, with their previous episodes addressing issues such as body shaming, sustainability in fashion, and beginning a business in the pandemic.
The third season of ZALORA Talks will feature various industry experts, brands, and key opinion leaders in six forty-minute episodes sharing their insights on the latest trends, issues, and culture in their respective fields. These episodes will tackle lighthearted topics such as the Hallyu wave and online shopping tips, progressive topics such as the growth of Halal beauty in the industry, and heavier issues such as plastic surgery and beauty standards and stereotypes.
Some of the prominent business leaders and online personalities who will be guesting on ZALORA Talks include Savina Chow (beauty entrepreneur), Noriana (Halal makeup artist, live host, and beauty expert), Rajkishore Agrawal (Head of Sales for PayPal in Southeast Asia), Inka Magnaye (Filipina content creator, host, and voiceover talent), Erianne Salazar (Filipina makeup artist and lifestyle content creator), Mongchin Yeoh (Singapore-based lifestyle content creator) among many others.
For the third season, ZALORA tapped a new host to lead the podcast: Angelique Manto, a Filipina television and events host. Angelique shared her excitement about being the host for this season: “There’s something deeply personal about a podcast, and having the opportunity to chat so candidly with different amazing women who are leaders in their fields about intimate topics from self-love to body confidence and running your own business – it’s not only a great way for ZALORA to connect with their audience, but also an exciting platform to empower the everyday Asian woman.”
Amidst preparations for the third season, ZALORA’s Director of Corporate Communications, Christopher Daguimol has shared that they wished to deepen their engagement with their ZALORA consumers through the podcast: “Our podcasts have been well-received by our audience, and we hope to continue to inspire them with thought-provoking content that impacts both their wardrobes and their minds. We believe that our regional listeners will also appreciate hearing themselves being represented in mainstream media, and look forward to having them participate in our conversations through social media.”
