Couple in Their 80s Become Fashion Influencers

Chang Wan-ji, 83, and his wife Hsu Sho-er, 84, run a laundry service in central Taiwan. It is not uncommon for people to forget their clothes there and never pick them up.⁠


Their grandson, Reef Chang, who is interested in fashion, came up with a cute idea for the elderly couple. Reef managed to persuade his grandparents to put on the old, forgotten clothes and pose with them for the camera. Chang and Hsu had never had a social media account, but now their Instagram @wantshowasyoung has more than 600,000 followers.⁠


“They are very happy because many encourage them and praise them. They feel as if they now have many more grandchildren in the world,” Reef said. “Through these posts now, my grandparents also want to tell elderly people not to limit themselves and live every moment to the fullest.”⁠
