Yesterday I had the opportunity to see Izzy Camilleri’s -MIZ runway show. When I read the press release for this show, I was interested in seeing what clothing for the sleek mature woman would look like. So, I grabbed the most stylish mature woman I know (my mother) and we went to go see what the hype around MIZ was. Heavily inspired by the 60’s houndstooth print flowed down the runway, with trims of fur everywhere. Both my mother and myself were impressed with the collection. Although some of the looks were a little “young” according to mom, I thought most of the looks would look stunning on the 50 + market. Refined, stylish and luxurious is what I would call most of the looks, and if you’ve ever felt that there was this void of proper clothing for 50+ women, MIZ might have filled it.

  • I was delighted to attend Fashion Week as the guest of my son, Grayson
    Miller. He’s often heard me say I want my appearance to be “au courant”
    and but not “young”. Izzy Camillieri takes on this challenge with her
    MIZ collection. Indeed it works in many ways. She has brought her
    sense of drama – while toned down somewhat – and uses the neutrals of
    black and white to great effect. However, I would have liked to see
    more use of colour. While older can suggest the need for caution, the
    colour black, while elegant, gets boring and even a big depressing if
    over used. The pieces I liked the best, and that are particularly
    suitable for boomer women, are those with structure, made from firmer
    fabrics, but still with some shape.
