Here’s the full length documentary here.
This is a link to several clips from a great documentary called Fabulous Fashionistas. The documentary follows the lives of several women all over the ages of 65 and their direct connections with fashion.
When I taught a class about consumer markets I used to assign this documentary, as it opens 20 year old eyes to new possibilities in the fashion world. The trouble with fashion is that you are steeped in it 24 hours a day. Clothing, advertising, shopping, the internet, it’s all encompassing. Love it or hate it, it’s a part of our lives. But the purpose for assigning this to my students has always been to get individuals to open their eyes. This is not just a high paced exclusive industry that focuses on women in their mid teens to late 20’s. The market is broken down into niche’s and genre’s. This documentary not only gives you an excellent look at a demographic we rarely discuss in women’s wear, but it shows us that you don’t truly die when you turn 30.
I like to think that one day I’ll be 90 years old and rocking out some crazy neons or even better have my own crazy style like Sue here. Some inspiration for your week.
