We love Iris Apfel! She’s flamboyant, quick-witted and quirky and all at the age of 93! She is a style icon to many and is well-known to many within the fashion and arts industry. Iris experiments to create her own personal style and definitely isn’t scared of an accessory. All of this and more is shown in the recently released documentary about her life.
The documentary follows her day to day life as well as looking into her home which is full of quirky fun ornaments like an Aladdin’s Cave, that would be the perfect house for children to play in. However this fun house is just for herself and her 101 year-old husband!
What I loved about the documentary was her vast collections of clothes and ornaments which are scattered throughout her homes around the world. She has so many wacky items that just make up her vibrant personality.
What makes this even better is her willingness to let others view her items, by offering outfits and collectables to exhibitions and museums. She is also so willing to offer her services to these events and many others such as, photo-shoots and interviews, to allow people to see her and get an insight into her personality. She is doing what she loves, along with trying to help others on the way and picking up support from throughout the arts and fashion world.
She is Bold, Bright and Beautiful and we love her here at The Folly Boutique! We believe she is definitely an inspiration to many and is showing us how to be individual even into old age.
Don’t forget to check out the film yourself, you won’t be disappointed!
