Meet Iris Apfel

 
Grandma, is that you?

Amazing 90 year old woman  -  Iris Apfel.

Iris is a native New Yorker, an only child who grew up in the deeply ingrained love of fashion from an early age (her mother owned a boutique).

Studied art history at NYU and then continued to study art at the University of Wisconsin. In 1950 she established one of the most successful textile businesses in the U.S. and managed it for 42 years.

Iris has a remarkable personal style, colorful, bohemian and full of life. With her enormous glasses, mega jewelry, bold prints and textures, Iris at age 90 is unstoppable.

Recently, Iris received the "global style icon" by WGSN (an organization specializing in forecasting trends). In addition, she frequently lectures on style and fashion and is a regular guest at every major event in the fashion industry.
