Style & Grace

The idea for the ‘Style & Grace’ series of portraits came through studying how the perception of glamour has evolved, why this has changed and who our role models are today. Noticing the absence of older women in magazines, Alex took on the challenge of proving that whatever age a woman may be, glamour and style never grow old. Alex focused specifically on older women in London, capturing the array of diverse styles that the city is so well known for. Hippie, classic, glamorous and elegant, these portraits show that women in London are glamorous and stylish – whatever their age.
