CIRKEL Intergenerational Mentoring Event: Fashion NYC

 

Fashion is an industry that treasures youth, champions beauty, and changes its entire look from season to season. It’s a world that is as hard to stay in as it is to enter. In the infamous words of Heidi Klum, “Either you’re in, or you’re out.”

It’s no wonder, then, that fashion is a notoriously ageist space — for insiders, as well as consumers. And even when a magazine puts an older face on its cover, it’s pulled from a limited pool of people like Helen Mirren and Maye Musk.
