Axon Round Table: 40 Plus Style

To Soho House for breakfast…  where Axon gathered a fascinating mix of fashion industry experts for a round table discussion on 40 plus style.

Hosted by Fashion Director Kath Brown, the conversation kicked off by celebrating the fact that women over 40 are having a zeitgeist moment. With gorgeous “older” supers dominating this season’s big designer campaigns and four of the actresses up for Oscars at the 85th Academy Awards being well passed their 39th birthdays, we’re pretty sure “middle age” is an obsolete concept!

Having said that, we also discussed at great length the fact that it’s never easy to find dresses that don’t expose too much flesh, aren’t too short , cover upper arms and still have a bit of an edge. Is it possible to be age appropriate and edgy at the same time? Answers on a postcard please… or @axonpublish
