Age is not a fashion fad
My Grey-dar is always on high alert and this week it went, ‘Peep, peep, peep,’ on the appearance of Hunger magazine’s ‘Through the ages’ fashion shoot. I like the tone of the editorial, too, ‘Fashion stands as a universal form of communication that has the ability to welcome all ethnicities, shapes and ages. Our attitudes need to reflect this and there is a dying thirst for representation rather than novelty tokenism and faddishness.’
It’s taken far too long but advertisers and fashion brands have woken up to the power of the Silver Spend. Let’s hope they all realise that age is not a fashion fad.
The grey-haired model in is Stefanie from Mrs Robinson Management who I met backstage at 50-plus Fashion Week.
