Fabulous Fashionistas

About the Show

About the Show

Award-winning director Sue Bourne explores the art of ageing in the company of six extraordinary women. With an average age of 80, Bridget, Daphne, Jean, Gillian, Sue and Lady Trumpington have something inspirational in common: a determination to keep going, to look fabulous and to have fun. Without botox or plastic surgery, these women are redefining old age, in style. Not one of them feels like an 'old person' and, in their own ways, they are defying expectations of the ageing process. This Cutting Edge documentary features uplifting, often poignant personal stories and insights into how staying young and dressing with style is about more than following the latest trends; it's about an attitude to life itself.

Hi all, I have just watched the most inspirational show on T.V in years. Fabulous Fashionistas. Having just turned 60, I have been feeling a tad washed up, unable to obtain any form of part time employment and not joining in any social groups has left me feeling like my use by date has come around. I am a very young minded 60 year old, I love meeting people, dressing in modern clothes, taking care of my skin and wearing chic hairstyles, so why do so many women my age and older feel so ready for the scrap heap. Well, no more ladies. I am so inspired by this show, these women have set a precedent for the rest of us, advocates for fighting ageism, keeping fit, being employed and living life to the full. Absolutely loved this show and will continue to tune in as long as it keeps running. Thank you Sue Bourne, in one show you managed to propel me off the lounge, take a good look at my self and my current way of thinking. I will certainly be facing tomorrow with a different mindset.
