Let’s talk about mature women advancing in the fashion industry. “Even when I do a shoot with very young models, they get so excited to know that they can model past 20.
They are so young; there’s a lot of competition when you’re young. I let them know there are ups and downs, and sometimes there’s more work and sometimes you have less. (Older women) are wiser, we’ve been through many bumps in life. Do you think you’ve been through bumps? You’ve got scores to go through!” – Maye Musk
