A non-traditional swimsuit fashion show was held at that Hetong Charitable Foundation for the Elderly in Tianjin, China. This unique fashion show consisted of about 100 models who proudly walked the runway in brightly colored bathing suits.

The goal for the fashion show was to "to provide a platform for China's over-60s to express themselves, promoting a healthy and positive lifestyle." This creative event aimed to eliminate the negative stereotype surrounding elderly people that states they are unhealthy or immobile.

The elderly swimsuit fashion show displayed a fresh perspective to the inevitability of growing up. Each of the participants boasted confidence and charisma as they walked the runway with massive smiles and quirky over-sized umbrellas.
