Why do we wear what we wear? Why do some clothes give us confidence? Can fashion be empowering?
I was asked these questions by that’snotmyage.com founder, Alyson Walsh. Alyson was keen to delve deeper into understanding our fashion choices and chat to me about changing careers, body image, the impact of social media and the psychology behind our shopping habits.

Alyson is a freelance journalist, former magazine fashion editor and author. She created That’s Not My Age in 2008, when she noticed a space online to celebrate women (and men) of all ages. Alyson writes for the FT’s How To Spend It, The Pool and the Guardian websites and says
“It’s not about age, it’s about style. And this is for every woman who refuses to be invisible.” Alyson Walsh, that’snotmyage.com
