I have an online fashion boutique that celebrates and empowers women over 45.
I am 25 but was inspired after seeing women like my mum feel invisible and irrelevant in the eyes of the fashion industry. I’ve heard terrible stories of women being told they don't belong at fashion events and of designers rejecting A-list celebrities because of their age.
We sell labels typically aimed at younger customers, but we curate our collections to feature designs that will work just as well, if not better, for women over 45. I think beauty comes in many forms, so everything is modeled by real 45-plus women of different ages, shapes, heights and sizes. We also have an “Ageism Is Never In Style” forum that unites women who are disrupting fashion across the globe.
A love for style and looking good never goes away, but the fashion industry still has a long way to go before recognizing this.
My wake-up call came when I was 50. My mother had lost her mobility, and I recently learned I had osteoporosis. So I made some changes, like lifting free weights and walking regularly.
By the time I was 58, I was able to rock climb, do whitewater rafting and ride horseback with my daughter.
When I was 60, I hiked Mount Fuji. Then my husband and I decided that we would climb Mount Kilimanjaro. It was the most challenging thing of my life.
I ran the first mile of my life and placed third in my age group when I was 65 for my first 5K. My next goal was a triathlon, and I did it!
I had never been involved in any sports earlier in my life and, therefore, still don’t consider myself an athlete. But encouraging others to meet new goals has been one of the most rewarding parts of my new post-50 adventures.
