Sometimes your biggest failures can lead to your greatest successes, this is the inspirational message behind model turned entrepreneur Elle Ferguson’s new podcast series Sliding Doors with Elle Ferguson, available on LiSTNR from Wednesday, March 31.
In her podcast Ferguson speaks to influential people who are at the top of the fashion and beauty industry around the world, about their ‘sliding-door moment’, that is, the moment they took a risk or leap of faith and it ultimately led to their success.
Ferguson’s admiration for her guests, as well as a passion for all things fashion and beauty shines through each interview while.
Her warmth encourages vulnerability, creating a space for conversation with industry icons like celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin, famous for her work with the Kardashian family, internationally renowned Australian designer Paul Vasileff, famous for his Paolo Sebastian brand and Marie Claire Australia’s Founding Editor Jackie Frank, to share their inspiring journeys.
Guests talk about how they deal with challenges like imposter syndrome, fear of failure and the consistent rejection that come with working within the highly competitive aesthetics industry, as well as who their biggest supporter was and the advice they wish they had been given at the start of their career.
It is a must listen for anyone who dreams of working at the highest levels of fashion and beauty.
Ferguson rose to fame from her acclaimed fashion and lifestyle blog ‘They All Hate Us’, cultivating a large following from her fashion and modelling collaborations, before launching her own vegan beauty brand ‘Elle Effect’ in 2018.
She has worked alongside some of the biggest names in fashion and beauty globally.
Entrepreneur and digital influencer, Elle Ferguson, said, “throughout my career in fashion and beauty, I’ve been lucky enough to meet the amazing people behind the world’s biggest fashion brands and celebrities’ most iconic looks.”
“Every time I met one of these people, they shared their incredible journey to success with me. All of which seemed to start with one sliding door moment, a moment where they decided to go it alone and make a passion their profession.”
“I found these stories so personal and inspirational; I knew a podcast was the only medium I could use to give these stories the time and space they deserved to share them with those out there who are desperately looking for a sign to take the leap and start a new career.”
LiSTNR Original Podcasts, Head of Content, Jen Goggin, said, “Elle’s incredible career in fashion, beauty and business has given her the credibility and contact lists to engage with global superstars in the fashion, media and beauty world.”
“Her charismatic and warm personality is perfect for the medium of podcasting and has meant that her podcast episodes are always full of exclusives and valuable advice from her guests. It is a must-listen for anyone interested in the fashion and beauty industry.”
Sliding Doors with Elle Ferguson is available for free on the new LiSTNR app.
