Can-do Attitude – Silver Sisters have it!

A book and now a documentary about fashion coming of age!

London Fashion week is in full swing, reminding me once again that my love of fashion does not always extend to those who consider themselves ‘Fashionable’.

Daphne travels the globe to meet Fashion Designers and the camera loves her!

In my experience it is those who feel they have the edge (Victoria, Sienna, Harry… I could go on) who are so very far from the mark of what is truly stylish.

Self expression is key. A disposable income plus sycophantic personal stylist is a dangerous combination leading to popularist over-indulgence in ‘the latest trend’ worn with such crippling unconsciousness.

As expected I received rave reviews from my sister, having sent her a hard-back of copy of ‘Advance Styling’ by Ari Seth Cohen.  This sensational publication is devoted to alternative fashion photography. Ari enthusiastically captures fashion lovers on the street in New York and his working subjects had an average age of 80.

In the same spirit I enjoyed Ari’s portraits I was thrilled to watch Sue Bourne’s captivating Channel 4 documentary ‘Fabulous Fashionistas’ to see how six octogenarians based in the UK get their fashion fixes. The film shows the women’s positive love of fashion and unapologetic lust for life. This program put a spring in my step this September!
