More models over 50 walked the runways this season than any “in recent memory.”
True style is timeless ― and apparently ageless, too.
There were over four times as many models over age 50 in the Fall 2017 fashion shows as there were employed for Spring 2016, according to theFashionSpot’s newest diversity report.
According to the report, “21 models over age 50 walked the runways of New York, Paris, London and Milan.”
It’s a whopping 160 percent increase over Spring 2016, when only five were hired.
“Women in their 50s, 60s and onward turned up more this fashion month than during any season in recent memory,” the report authors wrote.
In Europe, age inclusivity is happening faster than other factors like size.
Still, the report called fall 2017 a “banner season” for diversity, signaling that just like the models featured, fashion month just keeps getting better with age.
