Stylist Claudine Calliebot, is by far one of the edgiest 50-plus women in Geelong. Not one for the white capri pant and floral tunics that normally adorn those living so close to the coast, she is turning heads with her unique take on femme-punk, and has recently collaborated with some of the country’s hottest new designers, including Geelong’s very own Birdskin.
While ex-Principal Barb may have retired from professional life, she certainly hasn’t retired her ideas about living and dressing well after 60. Casey Rafferty quickly caught up with this head-turning, local style advocate to get her take on the opportunities life can present women after 60 candles.
Former Masterchef contestant Benita Orwell overcame ageism and personal adversity to land herself a spot on the internationally acclaimed reality cooking programme. She hopes that her story will inspire more women over fifty to follow their dreams not in spite of their age, but because of it.
Lisa Hall is the free-spirited couturier behind the womenswear label, Madame Hall, creating bespoke, original attire for urban bohemians. Unlike other western fashion designers before her, Lisa was not content to simply fly home with a suitcase full of Indian fabrics, and instead, traded life in Sydney for a remote Indian town at the age of 48.
By immersing herself in what truly inspires her — art, traditional crafts, and colour as a reflection of everyday life, Madame Hall has flourished, attracting a dedicated community of followers and customers from around the world, and even gracing the pages of Australian Vogue on one Cate Blanchett.
