Ari Seth Cohen Participates on Panel about Style Blogs at Fashion: Now & Then

Ari Seth Cohen is the creator of Advanced Style, a blog devoted “to capturing the sartorial savvy of the senior set.” He says, “I feature people who live full creative lives. They live life to the fullest, age gracefully and continue to grow and challenge themselves.”

Ari has a longtime interest in clothing and style and a lifelong affinity for his elders. When he was growing up, his late grandmother (a librarian) was his best friend; her “energy and attitude towards life” continue to inspire him. As a result, he couldn’t help but question the absence of mature faces in the fashion world. “I noticed a lack of older people in fashion campaigns and street style sites,” he says. “I wanted to show that you can be stylish, creative and vital at any age.”

At 31, Ari is far from being eligible for a featured spot in Advanced Style. Still, he does have a decade’s worth of professional accomplishments. In addition to developing a blog that’s been touted by the New York Times, the New Yorker, and Forbes, last year he created a special photo installation for Selfridges in London. Before becoming a blogger, he spent years working in fashion production and retail management. Ari lives in New York City.

On Friday, October 19th and Saturday, October 20th professionals from the fashion industry, libraries, archives, academic institutions, publishers, and museums will gathered at LIM College for Fashion: Now & Then, a conference on the past, present, and future uses of fashion information that consisted of lectures and panel discussions.  

After the panel discussion on Style Blogs moderated by Suz Massen, LIM College hosted an Advanced Style party and book signing.  Pictures of the party are available on Advanced Style.

Awarded by House Beautiful as their first Master Class Designer and recently named as one of Elle Decor's A-list designers for the second year in a row.  Her work continues to inspire those through confident, livable and ever-changing interiors.
