“It’s about your state of mind. It’s not about age. Nature determines age, but you determine your state of mind.” These are the words spoken by 80-year-old Wang Deshun, who for the first time last year walked a runway as a model at a China Fashion Week show.
He claims to only have one goal at his age, “to defy the aging process by staying fit and challenging himself to try new things.” Deshun reportedly works out three hours a day, and in his younger years even taught modeling and organized his own fashion shows. It wasn’t until last year, however, that he decided to step out on the runway himself.
Deshun has also been consistently referred to as China’s “hottest grandpa,” and was also the focus of a video titled “Be the fiercest,” which currently has over half a million views on YouTube.
