Season 1, Episode 2,  Jan 22, 2018, 05:30 AM

In Episode 2, Stevie and Ana talk Encounters. A fleeting glimpse of a stylish stranger while on holiday, an ongoing friendship with the woman who works in the local boutique, or bumping into an enigmatic stranger in a Soho club: often it’s the chance encounters we have that can really influence how we think about clothes.

Stevie makes a new friend, and Naomi Shimada tells us about her solo travels in Argentina. Sophie Davidson talks getting dressed for a memorable blind date. Ann-Maria McCarthy tells us of a vintage friendship, and Ana has a round-table on make-up and growing up with her school friends. Finally, the latest Loved and Lost segment comes from fashion journalist and erstwhile party reporter Osman Ahmed.

The British Red Cross charity shop is on Old Church Street, just off the King’s Road.
