Event Description

Everywhere, people are reinventing what it means to age. What can we learn from them? How can we disrupt our thinking on fashion, merchandising and aging?

Join AARP Pennsylvania and the Drexel University Westphal College of Media Arts & Design for a discussion about fashion, retail, merchandising, and aging moderated by Joseph H. Hancock, II, PhD, professor and director of the Retail & Merchandising program. Expert panelists will discuss how fashion can support inclusion for the 50+ community and how they develop campaigns and strategies to market to older fashion consumers.
