As trends go the use of older models during fashion week is fledgling but growing. This year Simone Rocha used Benedetta Barzini, 73 as star of her show, along with 3 other models over 50.
In the US, J Crew used REAL people and among them a few older models.
Some older models held protests outside the London shows. Their point was that Women aged over 50 spend nearly 7 billion pounds a year on clothes. An amount that shot up by 4.5 per cent between 2013 and 2013.
However the representation during fashion week was minimal and the use of little girls to inspire the older buyer was insulting.
