We talk to the maker herself about the beauty of hand-made, the limitations of conventional fashion and how older women should embrace the opportunity to shape their lives and build their own idiosyncratic wardrobes, and inspire younger women to do so in the process.
When we meet fashion designer Andrea Nicholson she is pinning up a toile, a calico prototype of a Japanese inspired Aragato Duster Jacket. She talks to us about how she is revisiting some earlier influences, of Japanese costumery prevalent in the Kabuki theatre, and the work of Kenzo Takada during the 60s and 70s.
Linda Jackson can see into the future. Although the iconic artist and fashion designer, who made a generation fall in love with the dazzling shades and dramatic shapes of the Australian landscape, came of age decades before we trawled Instagram for inspiration, she’s long believed the images we look at help us get to know the world.
Broad is the premier publication dedicated to the life, style and beauty needs of mature Australian women. We put women aged 50-plus centre stage, to disrupt the stereotype of ageing through quality journalism and a design lens that embraces the beauty of being older.
