If you don’t think like everyone else you don’t have to dress like everyone else -Iris Apfel
Iris Apfel, “Rare Bird” in the fashion industry.
The collector who treasures individuality above collective mind. She fascinates me by her colorful eclectic style mixture of textiles patterns, textures, accessories, haute couture and vintage clothes.
Albert Maysles filmed a movie about this extraordinary lady simply named Iris
Now, she is 95 years and she is one of the most vivacious individuals and style icons in the world of fashion that inspires filmmakers and exhibitions to showcase her explosive, exuberant personal wardrobe and collection of Etnic accessories, fabrics, and garments from over the Globe.
Together with her husband, Carl, she establishes an international textile manufacturing company, Old World Weavers.
She is a remarkable authority in antique fabrics, textiles, and interior design. She worked in numerous projects of restorations in White House. Iris Apfel respects and admires craft, beauty, humanly made things of all sorts. She is attracted to the bizarre and gradually herself became more bizarre as she aged.
