Those of you who like us here at Love 2 Dress, your suppliers of quality ladies fashion online, love to check up on all the latest fashion news may have seen an article in the press this week concerning a very special lady who goes by the name of Jessie Power, for those of you who didn’t see it, Jessie is the UK’s, if not the world’s oldest fashion designer, who is still going strong at the age of 101.
Designing ladies frocks under the name Miss Neno, Jessie has been working in Ladies fashion since the 1930s. Although she did think of retiring a few years back at the age of 86, we are glad that Jessie continues to design garments to this very day.
This got us all thinking here at Love 2 Dress, which other designers are now growing old disgracefully?
Vera Wang – At 67, you could say that Vera Wang has done absolutely everything there is to do in the fashion industry. She found fame working for Ralph Lauren before branching out on her own and starting her own label in 1990.
Carolina Herrera - 77 year old Carolina Herrera waited until 2014 to win the Couture Council Award for Artistry of Fashion. Not a bad an age considering that most people decide to leave their day jobs by 65. She has been on the board of directors for jewellery designers Mimi since 2004, and shows no signs of retiring just yet.
Donna Karan – Born back in 1948, Donna Karan, or ‘DK’ for short is the American designer who brought the world the famous DKNY clothing labels. Although Donna stepped down as head of DKNY last year, her legacy is still worth a mention.
Miuccia Prada - No prizes for guessing which label Italian fashion designer and businesswoman Miuccia Prada set up? On turning 64 years old back in May 2013, Miuccia was named one of the fifty best-dressed woman over the age 50 by a poll in The Guardian. That’s not all, Forbes had her listed as the 75th most powerful woman in the world back in 2014.
It just goes to prove that age is a number. Be who you want, do what you want, and most of all dress how you want. Visit us over on our website today for all of your latest ladies fashion online.
