According to this article in HuffPost’s,┬áthis week’s fashion show in New York City’s Lincoln Center will see a new feature — ageing — which, if markets have anything to say, could shortly be at the industry’s cutting edge. The fashion-label Cole Haan’s “Born in 1928” is as prescient as it is progressive.

Michael Hodin, the author, makes a striking comment about to coincidence of fashion recognising the ageing consumer and age-friendly cities. He says ; “For age-friendly cities to take off, they need to follow fashion’s lead. What are the marketplace incentives that can turn age-friendly development from “the right thing to do” to “the commercially advantageous thing to do.” If it’s the latter, the former will take care of itself.

Good thought.
