A Taiwan couple in their 80s is running a laundry service and has taken Instagram by storm as they re-style abandoned clothes for modelling.

A Taiwan couple runs a laundry service in the city of Taichung and their Instagram page wantshowasyoung managed by their grandson, has garnered attention and appreciation worldwide for promoting environmental fashion.

Arranging and restyling second-hand clothes help the environment sustain which has garnered them a huge fan following recently. They’ve also been featured in Taiwanese edition of Vogue and Marie Clarie.  Modelling in these clothes makes me feel 30 years younger,says the husband, Chang Wan-ji. His wife, Hsu Sho-er added, “heart is not ageing”!

The couple is not just an ordinary Instagram sensation. The duo is helping the environment, giving millions of people motivation, breaking age norms, creating a mark in the fashion fraternity and giving us some major style inspiration!

Check out the young-hearted and happy couple here:

今天放這張的原因,是孫子上週一個人手忙腳亂下發生的蠢事⋯⋯ 上週末突然間有很多留言,一直很想好好回覆,結果按錯鍵點到了刪除,但這張真的很可愛!是萬吉拍照時自己玩開了,拿著相機擺姿勢說「我是不是要這樣?」 看到他們自己樂在其中的神情就是最棒了的!但我以後會小心⋯不再做蠢事了。 👴🏼萬吉(身高160) 外套:至少8年未取真皮騎士外套 上衣:至少5年未取條紋襯衫 褲子:至少10年以上未取導致褶痕處自然色落的工裝褲 👵🏼秀娥(身高155) 外套:至少5年未取合成皮騎士外套 洋裝:15年以上未取老洋裝 🔔溫馨提醒|洗衣服請記得拿❤️ The reason for posting this picture today is because of the stupid thing I’ve done in a rush. Last week, many comments came all in a sudden and I accidentally deleted this picture when I tried to reply you guys! This picture is really so cute! Wan-Ji got so turnt during the shooting and was posing and asking “should I do it in this way?”. It was the best moment to see them enjoying themselves. And, I’d be careful not to do such stupid thing again! 👴🏼Wan-Jin (160 cm) Outer: Leather jacket, unclaimed for >8 years Top: Striped shirt, unclaimed for >5 years Bottom: Cargo pants, faded at the flowing because it’s unclaimed for >10 years 👵🏼Sho-Er (155 cm) Outer: Artificial leather jacket, unclaimed for 5 years Dress: unclaimed for >15 years 🔔Please remember to pick up you clothes ❤️ #萬秀洗衣店 #萬秀的洗衣店 #wantshowasyoung #grandparents – – _ #mixandmatch #clothes #ootd #instafashion #style #fashion #couple #夫婦 #80代 #grandma #grandpa #femmefuture #classyvision #vintage #古着 #コーディネート #love #laundry #outfits

如果今天還是秀娥氣勢贏,那我就會告訴萬吉,說應觀眾要求,必須出一篇秀娥特輯! 前幾天VOGUE的文章說到:「有一種愛叫萬吉和秀娥的愛❤️」,這是什麼愛?其實孫子也不知道,但當有人把整套好看的西裝送洗未取,拿來給兩人穿上,就算這次沒有相視而笑,就算衣服來自不同主人,也還是會覺得是情侶裝,這應該就是愛吧? 👴🏼萬吉(身長160) 成套西裝:至少20年以上未取成套雙排扣白西裝 內搭:8年以上未取布達佩斯紀念T(已找到新主人) 腰帶:萬吉的領帶 👵🏼秀娥(身長155) 成套西裝:至少15年以上未取全套卡其西裝 內搭:3年未取白t恤 💡溫馨提醒|洗衣服請記得拿、認同請分享❤️ These old clothes have been abandoned by customers at the laundry for years. Owners of the laundry store, Wanji and Sho-Er who are over 80 years old. Grandson just can't bear to see them overwhelmed with bore everyday. So, ask them to reinterpret fashion, hoping to let everyone know that age is not a barrier to have fun in fashion and even old clothings can transformed into trendy outfits! 💡A friendly reminder|Don’t forget to pick up your laundry. #有一種愛叫萬吉和秀娥的愛 #萬秀洗衣店 #Wantshow #wantshowasyoung #grandparents – – – #mixandmatch #clothes #ootd #wiw #instafashion #style #fashion #couple #夫婦 #80代 #grandma #grandpa #dappei @dappei_tw #juksyootd @mixfitmag_snap #cool_ootd #plainme_snap #plainme_life #femmefuture @nataliadornellas @irdailystyle @styleshare_kr #classyvision #vintage #古着 #コーディネート #love

Top Model — 秀娥! 在前一陣子,做了一個調查,問大家喜歡萬吉比較多,還是喜歡秀娥比較多,結果秀娥壓倒性勝利,於是應廣大秀娥粉要求,特別推出秀娥眼神特輯❤️ (萬吉表示⋯⋯) _ 對了,有發現驚喜小彩蛋嗎? 🔔溫馨提醒|洗衣服請記得拿❤️ Top Model — Sho-Er! A few days ago, I've made a poll and asked if you guys like Wan-Ji or Sho-Er more. The result was an overwhelming victory for Sho-Er! So, at the request of all her fans, here's a seires of pictures of her cute expressions ❤️ (Wan-Ji feels…) _ Btw, did you notice the “post-credit scene"? 🔔Please remember to pick up you clothes ❤️ #萬秀洗衣店 #萬秀的洗衣店 #wantshowasyoung #grandparents – – _ #mixandmatch #clothes #ootd #instafashion #style #fashion #couple #夫婦 #80代 #grandma #grandpa #femmefuture #classyvision #vintage #古着 #コーディネート #love #laundry #outfits #topmodel #model

6/27-7/27,讓萬吉和秀娥多麼驚奇一個月! 秀娥:「不要覺得自己老就想每天休息,因為這樣,只會讓你越來越老!」 一個月前的今天,姑且一試的發了照片,沒想到讓萬吉秀娥從不知道Instagram 的老人,變成了會看留言的年紀大的人! 👴🏼萬吉(身長160) 針織衫:至少5-10年未取針織衫 上衣:萬吉私服T-SHIRT 短褲:萬吉私服工作褲 👵🏼秀娥(身長155) 上衣:至少3-5年長版落肩T-shirt 裙子:秀娥30年以上私服 💡溫馨提醒|洗衣服請記得拿❤️ From 6/27 to 7/27, what a surprising month for Wan-Ji and Sho-Er! Sho-Er said, “Don’t just keep resting every day because you think you’re old. This will only make you older!” One month ago, I’d posted some photos and unexpectedly turned Wan-Ji and Sho-Er from old peoples that didn’t even know Instagram to someone that read through comments! 👴🏼Wan-Ji(160 cm) Sweater: unclaimed for 5-10 years Top: Wan-Ji’s own T-shirt Bottom: Wan-Ji’s own working pants 👵🏼Sho-Er(155 cm) Top: Long, oversize T-shirt, unclaimed for 3-5 years Dress: Sho-Er’s own dress, worn for at least 30 years 💡Remember to pick up your clothes ❤️ #萬秀洗衣店 #萬秀的洗衣店 #wantshowasyoung #grandparents – – _ #mixandmatch #clothes #ootd #instafashion #style #fashion #couple #夫婦 #80代 #grandma #grandpa #femmefuture #classyvision #vintage #古着 #コーディネート #love #laundry #outfits

秀娥開心❤️(萬吉到底說了什麼?) 萬吉看秀娥穿這樣好像講起了什麼事,結果秀娥就突然笑了~這件看起來很少女的衣服不知道什麼原因也被主人遺忘,但阿嬤再度無違和的撐起…另外要說一下萬吉的眼鏡,一個83歲的老人家,以前都戴金框眼鏡,結果某一天他出門回來,自己去配了一副黑框… 👴🏼萬吉(身長160) 外搭:7年以上未取格紋壓扣襯衫 上衣:5年以上未取條紋亨利領襯衫 褲子:阿公私服工作短褲(但堅持工作褲也要熨燙過) 👵🏼秀娥(身長155) 洋裝:10年以上未取吊帶格紋洋裝 內搭:10年以上未取小碎花襯衫 💡溫馨提醒|洗衣服請記得拿、認同請分享❤️ These old clothes have been abandoned by customers at the laundry for years.

這不是要說阿公在模仿年輕時看小姐的樣子! 而是一個有點悲傷,關於布達佩斯旅遊紀念T被遺棄的故事…身上的衣服,來自被放了至少8年以上的T恤區,衣服上面寫著布達佩斯,而這位客人一共送洗了五件,分別是黑白灰黃紅,除非他真的很愛這一件T恤的款式,不然一定是一家人出遊時買的吧?但…就是洗了沒有來拿,不知道他們一家的記憶中是否還有布達佩斯。 👴🏼萬吉 上衣:至少8年布達佩斯紀念T 褲子:至少3年以上未取UQ卡其褲 👵🏼秀娥 領巾:兩條被遺棄的手帕綁成 上衣:至少8年布達佩斯紀念T 裙子:阿嬤30年私服 💡溫馨提醒|洗衣服請記得拿、認同請分享❤️ These old clothes have been abandoned by customers at the laundry for years.

🎉抽獎啦!一點來自孫子的感謝小禮物 🎉 It's GIVEAWAY time! Here’s small gifts prepared by the grandson 先說方法:只要你在下面留言一句想對萬吉和秀娥說的話,或者想對你自己阿公阿嬤說的話,就可以有抽獎的資格!不需要你去tag誰(當然如果你要推薦給你朋友也很棒!) How to get it: Leave a short message below. It could be anything you would like to say to Wan-Ji & Sho-Er, or anything you would like to say to your own grandparents. No need to tag anyone! (But it’d be great if you really want to. Please feel free to tag and share.) Event period:8/1 ,23:59(GMT+8) 在滿1萬followers的時候,我已經非常開心,所以自掏腰包做了30個小禮物,想送給喜歡萬吉秀娥和我們「萬秀的洗衣店」的朋友,歡迎大家加入「萬秀的洗衣店」,但沒想到等到做好的時候,人數居然已經23萬,可是我卻還是只有30個小禮物… 這是一個刺繡的貼布章,圖案來自我們家的洗衣機和我們衣物包裝袋上的中文字,我沒學過設計,可能畫的不是那麼好(苦笑),但這可以黏或者縫在你的任何一件舊衣服、舊包包,希望傳達一個概念:「讓大家也能夠透過一點小變化,就讓舊衣服產生新生命!」當然,也成為我們「萬秀的洗衣店」的世界特派員工! 但很抱歉只做了30個,假如留言的人數超過幾千人,或許我會考慮在我能負擔的範圍內多做一些。 來吧!留下你想給萬吉秀娥的話,或者你想分享你對於你爺爺奶奶的話吧! At the beginning, I was so happy when the account had reached 10k followers. So, I’d been trying to express my gratitude by preparing some small gifts to our friends, to those who like ’Wan-Ji‘, ‘Sho-Er', and our 'Wan-Sho Laundry'. And when I finally managed to get those gifts from the manufacturer, the followers had already hit 230k, which was way more than I’d expected! But, there’re only 30 small gifts to give away. This is a badge patch. The design is inspired by our old washing machine and the words on our laundry bag. It’s written 'Wan-Sho Laundry' in Chinese. I'm not a designer, so it's probably not a pretty design (embarrassed laugh). This can be glued or sewn onto any of your old clothes or bags. I would like to share the idea that “By a little change, we can give old clothes a new life'. With this patch, everyone can be a spreader of the spirit of 'Wan-Sho Laundry' all around the world! Again, there are only 30 gifts in total. If more there’s more than a thousand comments, I’d love to do one more giveaway if I can afford it. Here we go! Leave a message for Wan-Ji & Sho-Er, or write a message to your own grandparents! #萬秀洗衣店 #萬秀的洗衣店 #wantshowasyoung #grandparents – – _ #mixandmatch #clothes #ootd #instafashion #style #fashion #couple #夫婦 #80代 #grandma #grandpa #femmefuture #classyvision #vintage #古着 #コーディネート #love #laundry #outfits
