Allana Harkin & Lesley Hampton

This week, Steve and Diana talk to correspondent and producer for ‘Full Frontal with Samantha Bee,’ Allana Harkin! Allana talks about her love of her hometown, Hamilton, producing Full Frontal while on a boat during the pandemic, and why Canada needs its own late-night talk show.

Allana shines the spotlight on Indigenous fashion designer and model, Lesley Hampton, who not only dressed Allana for The Emmys but has been endorsed by the musician Lizzo! Lesley explains how she started her first fashion line before finishing design school at George Brown, why ‘slow fashion’ is so important, and why her company is working to shift how the fashion industry can affect mental health issues.
