Showing women of all ages doing their own thing is what I want to do more of on That’s Not My Age. And with this in mind I popped along to London Fashion Week, over the weekend. Walking past a group of street style photographers desperately taking pictures of a badly dressed teenager by a telephone box, I aimed straight for the grown-ups going about their work. It was brilliant to very, very briefly meet the ever-so-elegant Linda Fargo senior vice president and womenswear director at Bergdorff Goodman, as well TNMA regulars, journalists Avril Groom and Francesca Fearon wearing matching Dorothee Schumacher jackets. ‘Who has time to check at 7am?’ laughed Avril. Floral prints and fancy boots, dresses over denim and checked blazers were in abundance. It’s always a bit of a bun fight at London Fashion Week but I wanted to get beyond that and capture the women with Style Forever, those who’ll always look comfortable in their own skin.
