Bridget Sojouner

I met Bridget Sojourner  through my dear friend Fanny Karst in London a few years ago.  Fanny has a line of clothing for older woman called, The Old Ladies Rebellion, and Bridget was one of her wonderful models. People approach Bridget everyday because of her bold and colorful outfits (mostly purchased in charity shops) opening the door to meaningful and interactions and conversations about aging and style. Bridget, a gardener and activist says," When people started stopping me about my clothes I thought, I've been through feminism, racism, all the prejudices. I'm an activist and Ageism is the last bastion." What a testament to the power of style!

I saw Bridget on the much-discussed TV show Fabulous Fashionistas and she was absolutely inspirational! I love that she looks so amazing whilst spending so little on her clothes. Thank you for featuring her - she looks incredible here, as usual!

I just loved Bridget in the BBC Documentary "Fabulous Fashionistas" - her style, her attitude and her assertiveness make her a great role model!

This fabulous lady was on tv here in the UK. She wore the most amazing earrings. She was brilliant.

Sorry I added my comment before reading the others (idiot that I am) that mentioned her on tv but I guess it means you can tell she made an impression

Hello Ari. My friend Elizabeth aka La Contessa recently had a photo shoot with Carla Coulson in Paris -- the Louvre, with chickens (!) in the Jardin des Tuileries --that I think you might find as interesting and inspiring as I have:

I am inspired by Bridget's style and how she connects her self expression to activism.
