Margot Spalding first came across our radar here at Broad because of her bold style, and #funwithfashion ethos for women over 50. But as the title of her Australian Story segment rightly suggests, Margot is a force of nature. Despite being dealt the cruellest of blows at 15 when she lost both her parents, and then again at 17 when she lost her sister, Margot has in the words of her daughter Georgia ‘thrown herself at life’ — dedicating herself to supporting others and standing up for those without a voice.
Some young girls are really into pink. Others insist on dressing up – princess for a day is a popular theme. And others prefer to step out in a dropped waist dress, carrying mother’s handbag and sporting a mini-bouffant. And that’s just to visit the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. Even at age three, a sense of timeless styling had Elizabeth Kingston in its grip.
Sharryn Morris-Claire is somewhat of a style legend, both here and overseas. Starting out on Instagram only two short years back as a way to share and experiment with outfit ideas, the Melbourne based colour consultant has amassed a following of epic proportions. It is currently sitting at close to 40,000 followers.
On a mission to not become invisible, Sharryn is renowned for her Boho style – part gypsy, part urban edge. We talk to this very Stylish Woman about her inspiration, and the many times she has sacrificed comfort for style.
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.
