Quite remarkable - do you think its a genuine historical clip? I'm not so sure...
mentalfloss.com In this British Pathé clip, fashion designers predict what the future of fashion will be. It mostly involves removable sleeves and adjustable-length gowns, though there is a nifty cantilevered heel design shown. But my favorite is the one male outfit shown at the end, which predicts that the man wil...

Iris makes some extremely valid points about why the fashion industry needs to start considering courting older women. Would you like to see labels design specifically for older women, or simply have established designers include more "wearable pieces" for the mature consumer as part of their regular runway collections?

10 Facts Every Woman Should Know:
1. Everyone has rolls when they bend over.
2. When someone tells you that you're beautiful, believe them. They aren't lying.
3. Sometimes we all wake up with breath that could kill a goat.
4. For every woman unhappy with her stretch marks is another woman who wishes she had them.
5. You should definitely have more confidence. And if you saw yourself the way others see you, you would.
6. Don't look for a man to save you. Be able to save yourself.
7. It's okay to not love every part of your body....but you should.
8. We all have that one friend who seems to have it all together. That woman with the seemingly perfect life. Well, you might be that woman to someone else.
9. You should be a priority. Not an option, a last resort, or a backup plan.
10. You're a woman. That alone makes you pretty damn remarkable. -Austin Blood
