STORY 

Based on Ari Seth Cohen's fashion blog and book, the documentary follows seven fabulous New Yorkers aged between 62-95 as they challenge the stereotypes of beauty and ageing with their idiosyncratic fashion style.

The recent emergence of street style as a cultural phenomenon has changed the way we look at fashion forever. In 2008, Ari Seth Cohen began a blog depicting the style and stories of the city’s senior set. As Cohen’s blog comes to the attention of the international fashion community, an industry traditionally associated with youth, the ladies find themselves in a position of new-found fame and cultural influence. The documentary focuses on some of Ari’s favourite subjects, whose eclectic personal style and vital spirit have guided their approach to ageing. Each offers their own unique perspective on overcoming life’s obstacles with style and grace, proving that age is merely a state a mind.
