There are a lot of beauty standards accepted in society today. To maintain these standards, people who are interested in fashion should follow and maintain a number of rules. However despite their age, there are some models who inspire all others by their stereotypes. 

Therefore we at Anomalous decided to be inspired by the story of Rosa Saito, a 71 year model who proves that age is just a number for fashion.

Rosa Saito discovered her love for fashion when she was 68 years old. Her love for passion made her change her original name Sutsuku Saito into Rosa Saito for easy pronunciation. 

She is 1.68 in height and had no knowledge about the fashion industry when she just started out. However her adventurous spirit helped her and even brought her to Sao Paulo Fashion Week.

starting to model Rosa had to go through a lot of hard times. At the age of 22 she had to takBefore e care of her bedridden mother. She lost her husband in 2000. Therefore she had to take care of her 3 kids as both a father and mother. 

To get relaxed from all the stress Rosa started taking care of plants and she was able to find daily meditation in it. 

“It is important to seek and find yourself. And my moment of peace is with them (plants). I go to my garden and talk to them,” she says.

At first she never thought of becoming a model. But after she got 3 invitations from professionals she decided to give it a shot. 

“Twice it was by professionals from the Mega modelling agency and once by a photographer. I let the idea mature for a year, after all, it had costs too, it wasn’t something I was going to get into just like that, blindly. Until I decided to take the risk,” she recalls.

Even though Rosa finds beauty standards are oppressive she still has hope. “I feel that slowly we are changing. People are living longer, taking care of themselves more and companies really need to open up more in that sense and visualise these potential customers.” says Rosa.
