Advanced Style

It’s hard to take a stroll around uptown Manhattan without seeing some amazing high-end fashion, yet often it’s not from the usual young suspects. Ari Seth Cohen’s project Advanced Style features ladies of a certain age sporting timeless outfits around town.

Now, Cohen and his friend, filmmaker Lina Plioplyte, need our help to bring these women’s fashion, spirit, and eternal youth to the big screen. Here is what they have to say about this project, which is in need of grassroots funding (via their Kickstarter page):

Advanced Style is a documentary film about stylish older women living in New York City.  The film follows the daily lives and inspiring moments of New York’s most fashionable seniors. These portraits of women aging gracefully with tremendous spirit will challenge conventional ideas about beauty, growing old, and Western culture’s increasing obsession with youth.

For three years we have filmed many stylish, older women in New York City, but we need your help to turn this project into a full-length documentary film. Through our discussion of style, we’ve started a grander conversation about embracing age and living life to the fullest. Our *senior* starlets share their tips for choosing accessories, and perhaps more importantly, how they cope with their changing physical appearances and abilities, sex at an older age and, inevitably, death. No topic is off limits.

Be sure to chip in so we can hear what these unique creatures have to say about life and style!
