Stacy London is 52 and wants to be seen, not for the What Not To Wear TV host that she came to be most known for at 32, but for the woman on fire she is today. New beginnings often come with big endings, and for Stacy, there has been a heavy reckoning over the confluence of her hit TV show ending that rocket-shipped her to fame, grief over the passing of her father, and the emotional and physical toil accompanying the end of her child bearing body. But, with the unconditional support from the woman and partner she loves, Stacy is approaching the middle of her life –a time where most women begin to feel invisible– by letting go of what was and deciding to play big while starting all over again. She is taking on Menopause – something that no one seems to know anything about even though ½ the population goes through it – as the CEO of her own startup, State Of, a company dedicated to raising awareness about and providing rapid relief for menopausal symptoms. Today, Stacy no longer cares about telling anyone What Not To Wear. Instead, her passion lies in letting menopausal people know that she is not only on their side, but that the second half of life has the potential to become the most abundant time for anyone to come into their own, like it has for her.
“There seems to be this huge gap between 40 and 70… This is a stage of life that we dismiss because we think that the end of fertility is sort of the ultimate infertility…If we keep talking about this stage of life — the middle of life — as some sort of ending, instead of maybe an ending that has a new beginning, we lose the incredible brilliance and wisdom of people at this age…”
