Lyn Slater is a professor at Fordham University. When she went to meet a friend for lunch outside the Lincoln Center during New York Fashion Week, she had no idea her life was about to be forever changed!
When she was out to meet a friend, Lyn Slater, was suddenly surrounded by foreign journalists.
It was New York Fashion Week, and they thought she was a fashion icon!
That was a defining moment that turned Lyn into an Accidental Icon – and made her blog of the same name shoot to the skies...
At 63-years-old, Lyn Slater is not exactly a typical haute couture model...
... but that’s part of her appeal!
She decries age-based discrimination in both the fashion industry and in everyday life, including the tired notion of ‘dressing for one’s age.’
“I think, if you are comfortable in what you’re wearing, no matter how old you are and you’re owning it, you’re going to look completely fine,” Slater says.
She is currently signed to Elite London, the world’s leading modeling company, and has worked with brands such as Mango and Uniqlo.
Lyn is admirable not only for her unstoppable attitude, but for her edgy and decidedly hip style.
... and her Instagram page now boasts over 132 thousand followers!
That accident was a very happy accident, I guess we all agree on that!
She is a fearless lady who repudiates invisibility and threads the needle line between rebellion and convention!
