When Street Style Blogger ARI SETH COHEN grew up in San Diego he was best friends with his grandmother Bluma. She told him that if he wanted to do something creative he should go to New York. He finally made the move after his grandma passed away and was instantly inspired by the incredibly dressed, vital and active seniors he met in the city. Having never taken a picture before, he borrowed a camera and hit the streets to photograph and interview New York’s stylish elder ladies. In 2008 the ADVANCED STYLE blog was launched and gained popularity very quickly. Together with filmmaker and friend Lina Plioplyte he started to capture the interviews. And with the help of KICKSTARTER a film project was born.

Advanced Style is a documentary that examines the lives of seven unique New Yorkers aged 62 to 95 whose eclectic personal style and vital spirit have guided their approach to aging. From a glamorous 81-year-old dancer from the legendary Apollo theater, to a 93-year-old West Village artist known for her colorful ensembles and iconic red eyelashes crafted from her own hair, these ladies offer their own unique perspective on overcoming life’s obstacles with style and grace challenging conventional ideas about beauty in a world increasingly obsessed with youth.
