Welcome to What’s Next, presented by Florida Blue Medicare. In this episode, we’re changing the way you think about influencers. Did you know there is a growing field of powerful voices over the age of 50 taking over the social media world? Designer and stylist Arlinda McIntosh is one of those embracing the power of social media to celebrate her business and design talents while helping inspire others to be bold in their fashion choices.
Her fashion company Sofistafunk (https://www.instagram.com/sofistafunktheskirtco/) has more than 20,000 Instagram followers and her personal account, Funking After 50 (https://www.instagram.com/funkingafter50) has more than 10,000 followers. This New Jersey-based designer, beloved for her fabulous skits, is in her early 60s and feeling bolder than ever. She’s designed for everyone from Sean Combs (aka P. Diddy) to Lauryn Hill, Mary J. Blige and Queen Latifah. We talk about her passion for style, fashion-for-all and embracing new technologies at any age.
