"I suspect fashion's ageist reputation comes from the fact that, bar exceptions such as Dell'Orefice, most of fashion's most public faces – namely, the models on billboards – are young. Behind the scenes, however, it's the powerhouse of knowledge and respect that age brings that helps you to assert your place in the industry. Furthermore, one imagines the constant change and endless renewal of the industry not only motivates but encourages you to try something new. I hope I've still got that fire and curiosity in 40 years' time. I also hope I've got the money for that sheepskin coat." - Alexander Fury via The Independent
