Meet Emiko, The 93-Year Old Fashion Model

Chinmai Mori is a Japanese fashion designer who specializes in a free-form weaving technique called Saori. Her shawls, scarves, and hats are vibrant displays of color set in eye-popping patterns.

So, naturally, Mori asked her grandmother, Emiko, to serve as her primary model. At the age of 93, the grand lady is the perfect person to exhibit what Mori is trying to express. In an interview at the Instagram Blog, Mori explains:

And no one wears — or personifies — her work better than Emiko, who spends time at Chinami’s workplace almost every day. “She’s my favorite person in the whole world,” says Chinami. “I make grandma happy, and that’s just so much fun for me, too.”
