Idiosyncratic Fashionistas

Fashionistas.jpgMeet Valerie and Jean, aka the Idiosyncratic Fashionistas. Since 2009 these style and fashion bloggers have been working to raise the visibility of older women, and as such, are role models for those often ignored by designers and society. The IF's credo is 'growing old with verve,' while at the same time, to set a bad, bad example for older women everywhere!

Deborah Koeningsberger

8207DeborahKoenigsberger.jpgDeborah Koenigsberger is a force of nature. A successful businesswoman/entrepreneur, her boutique Noir et Blanc has been around since 1989. But, a walk through a Manhattan park 20 years ago, with her young sons proved to be a seminal, life-changing moment. It was there she came upon a mom and her child sleeping in a cardboard box. That prompted Deborah to start Hearts of Gold, a non-profit that provides sustainable changes in the lifestyles and levels of self-sufficiency for homeless moms and their children. More than 30,000 families have benefited from her dedication, commitment and hard work.
