New York based Ari Seth Cohen is behind what must by now, be one of the worlds biggest photography fashion blogs, along with the likes of The Selby. But on his blog Advanced Style, Ari has done something very different. He has trained his lens on the fantastic styles and looks on the women and men in their 60, 70’s 80’s and even 90’s. The result is a remarkable insight into a sector of society we don’t often see – hidden from the youth fixated images that cocoon us from billboards to magazine spreads. Ari teamed up, you might recall, to deliver those amazing shoots for Karen Walker sunglasses. He has just completed a documentary, and next week Ari will be coming here for one evening, where I’ll be in conversation with him. We’ll be talking about why he does what he does, his views on ageism in fashion, style and so on, with a chance for you to put your questions to him also.
So! It is an invite only event, but I have ONE double pass AND a copy of his book Advanced Style. So if you are free next Tuesday evening August 5, and would like to come to Ari Seth Cohen in conversation at the Department Store, Takapuna, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org - First in first serve.
