Yet another example of age being a mirage.Older people are repackaging themselves and redesigning their purpose in life. Deshun Wang expresses it beautifully : he has spent his whole life preparing for this. Stereotyping is restrictive and constrictive for anyone and any group. It is great to see older people just being and if they are the ones who will free us of ageism then they are serving a great purpose in life.
Fresh-faced with the innocence of youth, shorter in stature and curvier of figure, the models of the late 1960s to early ’80s were a far cry from the ideals of the industry today.
It is good to read
that some of our fashion leaders in the 60s 70s and 80s in Adelaide are going to have a reunion in October . They will be talking about their day, for sure, but they will be looking at the modelling industry now. These older women now have a lot of experience behind them and could well come up with something which will help our current girls and women in modelling lead a happier and healthier lifestyle. That many older people together with the connections they have will be a force to be reckoned with!
