Heute ist ein besonderer Tag! Ich bin mächtig stolz, dass ich mich zu den Top 50 Fashion Bloggerinnen weltweit zählen darf. Heute – am 50. Tag des Jahres 2017 – beginnen die 50 Top Fashion Bloggerinnen, die über 50 Jahre jung sind, etwas Einzigartiges! Lass Dich begeistern von der Idee, die hinter dieser riesigen Aktion steckt und die von vier bezaubernden Ladies ins Leben gerufen wurde.
THE FIERCE 50 Campaign!
A group of over-50 Bloggers have united together to create an annual movement – called THE FIERCE 50 CAMPAIGN celebrating and honoring one another at midlife and beyond.
Each woman participating in the annual campaing is paired with another blogger to create an inspirational post on their respective blog. With this campaign, the group of women over 50 intend to show that they are united as one and believe in standing togehter to genuinely love and support one another.
I’m really proud to introduce you to a charming Lady, Nora Minassian from JACKET SOCIETY, a greatful femal fashion blogger and designer. Nora is one of my first contacts which I have had with women in the USA, when I started with my blog two years ago.
Nora – from Jacket Society
Nora – the woman with a charming smile and the most beautiful jackets and blazers, which she creates as a fashion designer.
Tell me a little bit about yourself, where do you live? What is your background?
I am 53 years young and I live in Los Angeles, California. I am Armenian originally, I moved to USA when I was only a Teenager. I attended Otis College of Art and Design and received my BA in fashion design and merchandising and have worked in the fashion industry for the last 30 years. I am married to an Englishman, this is my second marriage, and I have a 20-year-old son from my previous marriage. My son attends University of California (USC) in Los Angeles and lives at USC housing but I get to see him quite often. I enjoy reading, traveling and taking nice long walks.
How did you start Blogging?
I was always getting complimented in how I dress and asked by women where I shop, so I decided to start a personal styling blog. I wanted it to be a little different than other personal styling blogs, so I decided to make jackets the most important part of my looks which is how I usually approach styling.
How and when did you start JACKET SOCIETY?
Jacket Society was born from my love of jackets in Sept 2013. At first it was meant to be a personal styling blog emphasizing the importance of jackets in one’s Looks. Given the fact that I am a fasion designer to begin with, after doing the blog for a while and showing diffent looks, I felt I could design and produce some of my own jackets to show and sell on my web site.
As a designer, when I used to work on a collection, I would always start with a jacket, I felt that it set the tone for the rest of the collection. This is exactly how I approach my personal style too, everything starts with a jacket. Soon after the blog had launched, I added to shop to my web site and started selling my own designed jackets and blazers which I styled on the blog.
Anything else you want my readers to learn about you?
I am very excited because after selling my jackets and blazers, I received a lot of positive feedback from my readers and customers so I decided to add jewelry and scarves to the site. Recently we have shawls, capes, tops and blouses as well. I style a lot of these pieces weekly on my blog so my readers and customers know how to wear them. We ship internationally to all countries and I do have some customers from Germany as well.
Thank you so much for reading about me and my company and remember style has no Age limit. I hope you will stop by JACKET SOCIETY and check it out.
Dear Nora, I thank you so much for your warm words and lovely pictures about you and your gorgeous collection of jackets and blazers.
I want to say thank you to all the lovely women who created the idea of THE 50 FIERCE Campaign. I am really proud to be part of such a great day! Thank you so much to…

Now I’m really curious how you like the FIERCE 50 Campaign
- What do you think of this unique idea?
In my opinion it is the right time, that in Germany the fashion blogger over 50 should break down boundaries. Write me your opinion, your comments and what are your ideas for being strong together.
Hughs and kisses
