I introduced you to Lynn Stanton a couple of months ago when she had just been snapped up by Silverfox model agency. This week she hit the runway for Sydney Fashion Week, so I thought I repeat this blog .... you are inspirational Lynn.
I met Lynn at a WestCONnex protest, and loved her simple style and Jean Seberg hair. I was not surprised to hear that she had just been snapped up by Silverfox model agency - see link below -
Who are the designers you like?
Yoshi Jones, Danielle (Milk and Thistle), Nick and Lucy Ennis (Nique)
What sort of clothes appeal to you?
Simple, elegant, youthful, fun.
Do you have any style icons?
(I don’t really know how to answer questions like this as I tend to just observe what’s around and take from it what appeals to me and suits me!)
Maybe ... Mary Quant, Helen Mirren, Cate Blanchett, Maggie Tabberer, Charlie Brown.
How do you feel about getting older?
So far (at 63), I love it – life has never been so good. I’m very lucky to have good health, good genes and adult children who keep me on my toes. This all means that there’s little I can’t do now that I was able to do when I was younger – I’d probably draw the line at cartwheels – and there are many things I can do now that I didn’t have the confidence to do when I was younger. It’s a cliché but I am less worried about what people think about the clothes I wear and the things I do as I get older. I laugh a lot and have a great mix of work and fun.
Do Magazines or Ad Campaigns talk to your generation?
Not really. I don’t buy magazines any more and I don’t watch much television. I’m more influenced by what I see and hear in the real world. Living in Newtown you get to see pretty much everything!
How do you approach fashion compared to your mother’s generation?
Mum’s generation was very much affected by the Second World War – families had limited resources, ration cards, and sewed and knitted their own clothes. My mother was a major influence and was likened to Audrey Hepburn in her youth. I’m sure that I spend more money on clothes than Mum ever did and I love shopping for vintage clothes whereas there were not many secondhand clothing shops around when Mum was younger.

What are the most important things in your life as you get older?
