Quote of the week: Tricia Jones
|Tricia Jones in Vogue magazine.|
As part of the day job, I recently gave a very short talk at the All Walks Beyond The Catwalk forum at Graduate Fashion Week. Sitting nervously at the table beforehand, I spotted a gorgeous older woman in head-to-ankle navy: Marc Jacobs rain mac, fine knit sweater, rolled up cotton pants, off-white Converse All Stars and what looked like a Marni necklace. Now that’s what I call Casual Glamour. It was Tricia Jones, co-founder of i-D magazine, there to talk about an upcoming Diversity NOW! competition.
‘I was 65 last week and I’m really proud to tell you that. It’s good, fuck it, 65 is really good.’
Going on to add, ‘ I think it’s incredibly important that everyone in the media takes onboard how essential it is to pass on a positive message of diversity: in ethnicity, size and age. We’re communicators. We absolutely have a responsibility.’
