Author Event: Lyn Slater!

in conversation with Eugene Rabkin. Free.

When Lyn Slater started her fashion blog, Accidental Icon, at age 61, she discovered that followers were flocking to her account for more than just her A-list style. They found in her an alternative model of older life: someone who defied the stereotypes, refused to become invisible, and showed that all women have the opportunity to be relevant and do something new at any stage of their lives. In her new memoir, Slater demonstrates that despite its unique challenges, being old is just like any new beginning—and can be the best and most invigorating of life’s phases.

In 2006 he created an independent fashion media platform, StyleZeitgeist, which includes a magazine and a podcast devoted to looking at fashion and culture with a critical eye.

He has contributed articles to the New York Times, T Magazine China, Air Mail, the Business of Fashion, 032c, Highsnobiety, Vogue Russia, GQ Style Russia, Them magazine in Japan, and the Haaretz Daily Newspaper in Israel. He has also edited several books, Stone Island: Storia with Rizzoli and Deborah Turbeville: Comme des Garçons with IDEA, and have contributed to a few others. He has taught criticism and fashion writing at Parsons The New School for Design and has participated in fashion conferences around the world.
