Advanced Style: The film

By Carolyn Enting

Advanced Style: The film
MiNDFOOD Style associate editor reviews documentary film Advanced Style ahead of its release on December 4.

Photographs of stylish women of an advanced age captured on the streets of New York have catapulted them as well as photographer and Advanced Style blogger Ari Seth Cohen to fame.

First they starred in Karen Walker’s eyewear campaign. Now they are stepping off the pages of Cohen’s book in new documentary film of the same title.

The film shows them appearing on television shows and sitting in the front row at New York Fashion Week as well as in their own homes and environments.

It’s uplifting viewing and intimate portrait of seven very special women, each with their own unique style and philosophies who get dressed up for life everyday and love fashion, whether it’s thrift or fashioned by themselves.

My favourite quote in the film is from Zelda who states “I think good style improves the environment”.

Zelda has since passed on. She died age 95 front row at New York Fashion Week.

As one of her friends states, for someone with such a love of fashion, how fabulous is that?

We introduce the ladies here and their wonderful quotes.
