Elderly Couple Who Owns a Laundromat Makes Use of Abandoned Clothes — Check Out the Outcome
An elderly couple in Taiwan has won hearts worldwide with their reinvention of fashion from leftover clothing. See how the couple revamped the unused clothes in their viral photos.
Hsu Sho-Er and Chang Wan Ji have been in the laundromat business for 70 years, but they never expected their modest business venture to bring them the fame it has recently.
The couple, who are 84 and 83 years old respectively, have gained a massive following after sharing their fashion-forward recreations using left-behind clothes at the shop. The posts are found below.
ELDERLY TAIWANESE COUPLE GOES VIRAL
According to CNN, the pair's grandson was the one who inspired them to try something new. Wan Ji reacted with some doubt as to whether or not people would like it.
The pair have garnered over half a million followers, so it is clear that many people love what they are doing. Sho-Er heartwarmingly said, "Knowing that people still like me makes it feel like I have more grandsons and granddaughters."
In one of their post's caption, it was explained that the grandson, Reef Chang, was tired of seeing his grandparents overwhelmingly bored every day, and so he asked them to "reinterpret fashion."
COUPLE SWITCHES UP THEIR WARDROBE AND GAINS FANS
It continued: "[They are] hoping to let everyone know that age is not a barrier to have fun in fashion and even old clothing can [be] transformed into trendy outfits!"
Chang explained that his grandfather typically likes wearing suits to show professionalism, while his grandmother was quite fashionable when she was younger. These days, she goes for comfort over style.
However, the couple's many followers would argue that they are delivering high fashion through their photos, which feature jackets, dresses, tourist shirts, Adidas sweatshirts, sunglasses, and hats.
GRANDFATHER AND GRANDDAUGHTER HAVE DANCE-OFF
Another elderly man went viral when he and his granddaughter compromised their bonding time due to the coronavirus pandemic by having socially distanced dance-offs.
Little Kira Neely, six, was accustomed to regularly visiting her grandfather, who lives nearby. The pair are incredibly close but were forced to stay apart due to the crisis.
However, Kira had the idea to do a dance-off with her grandfather by standing on opposite ends of the street. The heartwarming moment went viral on Facebook.
KIDS GREET GRANDPARENTS THROUGH GLASS DOOR
Elsewhere, one bittersweet moment captured the hearts of many on Twitter. A photograph that came from Norwich, Norfolk in England reminded everyone COVID-19 doesn't stop people from spreading love.
In the touching photo, we see two elderly persons in their robes bend down to greet two young tots wearing navy coats. The grandparents are inside their home, and the kids are outside.

The grandparents have their hands raised to the glass door, as do the young children. Both look as if they are touching despite the glass barrier between them.
