    Chatting with Nicky Gaylor, Director of Sylk - Busting Menopausal Taboos & Embracing Your Sexuality

    0 comments /
    A few months ago I joined a large facebook group claiming to be anti-ageist and empowering women as they get older. On the surface it looked great and very supportive, so I posted an open invite to the members to join our Ageism Is Never In Style movement (note: I was not publicising / advertising our boutique). But as soon as I did this, the mood changed. First I was 'ratted' out for posting something without the admin's consent (I did not realise this was the rule given it seemed to be a group about sharing stories and experiences) and...

    Vogue's Ageless Style 'The Non-Issue' - Progressive or Problematic?

    6 comments /
    View this post on Instagram A post shared by British Vogue (@britishvogue) on Apr 3, 2019 at 3:00am PDT By now you may have read that Jane Fonda is on the cover of this month’s British Vogue, in celebration of ‘Ageless Style’. According to Edward Enniful, ‘we should celebrate women over 50’, hence the publication of the ‘Non-Issue’. Under the helm of Vogue’s former editor, Alexandra Shulman, there was an annual ‘Ageless Style’ issue.

So here are out top tips for looking after your wardrobe, and ensuring your pieces last: Machine Wash Sparingly With Care Always wash dark clothing inside...

    Is Diversity In Fashion A Done Issue?

    0 comments /
    Another London Fashion Week has been and gone, and regardless of where you’ve been, it’s unlikely you’ve avoided seeing a bountiful of articles on the event. You’ve probably seen plenty of street style, Victoria Beckham coverage (as always), and lots and lots of beige. Activism has also been centre stage. Sustainability and environmental concerns has also been on everyone’s lips, whilst the Justice4Grenfell used LFW as a platform for protest. And at Vivienne Westwood’s show, models wore clothes emblazoned with political slogans. It’s always lovely looking at the beautiful clothes that grace the catwalks, and fun spotting new trends.

    THIS Is Why Intergenerational Communication Is Vital To End Ageism

    Yesterday I received a phone call from a young man working for a company that produces supplements for high profile national broadsheets and magazines. They were currently working on a 50+ supplement, and wanted the-Bias-Cut to get involved. Whilst on the surface it sounded like a great opportunity, I politely declined. Why?
