AWARDS & HONORS

AARP FASHION DISRUPTER AWARD
MAY 2017

AARP’s CEO, Jo Ann Jenkins has been leading a new initiative that seeks to change attitudes about how people view growing older in every aspect of their lives. Thus, Disrupt Aging means that we challenge and upend traditional notions of what it means to age by exploring fresh ideas and new approaches. New ideas and fresh thinking about fashion are especially important as the number of people over age 50—and the share of fashion consumers over age 50—grows at a rapid pace. One of the key ways to break down stereotypes and to solve design problems that have not been addressed is to work directly with real users in underserved communities. The user-centric element of this competition is a critical component. We want to encourage the development of fashion design to meet the needs of older people through innovation in both the design process and actual garment outcomes.
