Meet One of Our Everyday Extraordinary Disruptors

Designer Fanny Karst, 34,  has made a splash with her clothing line called the Old Ladies Rebellion — there have been collaborations with the Advanced Style blog and provocative T-shirts with sayings like “Old Is the New Black” and “Young at Art.” Last month, Karst told DA: “I believe that after 60 years old, we acquire a new freedom. In England, it’s the Freedom Pass — to travel for free — and it’s freedom to do, say or wear what we want. A good time to be irresponsible, irreverent, with wisdom and chic and humor.”

Icons Talk Fashion, Diversity and Changing Beauty Business
The iconic fashion models Beverly Johnson, Cheryl Tiegs and Patricia Velasquez were panelists at the Getty Center Icons of Style photo exhibition, along side Booth Moore, the style and fashion director for the Hollywood Reporter. They discussed changes in the fashion world, calling the industry today far more diverse regarding race, size, and age than what they experienced as young models. Beverly Johnson, an entrepreneur and author, called her experience as the first black model to grace the cover of American Vogue as “a defining moment in my life.” About her daughter, Anansa Sims, a successful plus-size model, and other black role models like Beyoncé, Johnson says: “I love their fearlessness — they are really pushing boundaries.”
