Everybody has an opinion on fashion, but Chic hit the streets to ask the true experts, the ladies who have seen it all, for their two-cents. Meet the lovely Ava, 86.

Who's your favorite designer?  "Bob Mackie. He's a wonderful designer. I also like Oscar de la Renta and Edith Head."  

What do you think of fashion people? "I was going to be a fashion designer in Europe, but I didn't like the fashion industry—too tough—so I became a package designer."

What winter trend are you over? "Ask a young girl."

What's your look for Spring? "I like the thirties look. I like deco! That was good fashion for women. Flattering, feminine, sheer, beautiful. If I were a designer, that's what I would bring back. I grew up in deco, actually."

What's one style that you can't stand in fashion? "The draping. It's not becoming. And if it's too short, it doesn't flatter." 

What advice do you have for the kids during fashion week? "If you are confident in your work, you should relax."

Where do you shop? "Flea markets! I have a very good eye; I'm an artist."
