Sarah Grant donned a swimsuit to make her Australian fashion week runway debut on Thursday, at the age of 71.

Wearing a black scoop-neck one-piece with a breezy floral over shirt, Grant walked the Aqua Blu show to a capacity crowd at Carriageworks in Sydney.

“It’s great for older women to see a more mature person wearing an outfit because then they can relate to it, and it’s good for business because baby boomers are one of the largest demographics when it comes to buying fashion,” Grant says. “Wearing a swimsuit wasn’t a problem for me because 70 is the
