Women with Attitude
Women with Attitude celebrates the older woman, her sense of style, and zest for life as she continues to manage the physical challenges that come with the ageing body. Nine women, aged between 60 and 90, took part in the project in which they explored, not only their sense of style, but also their attitudes towards clothing, being older, being photographed in a studio setting, and having themselves documented. The collaborative process involved five shoots with the participants being given a choice as to what they wore, and the completion of a questionnaire to gather information on their relationship with clothes, attitude towards style and fashion, and the way clothes express their individual identities, as they negotiate the ageing process.
