Iris Apfel


This is one of the best videos I have ever seen of Iris Apfel . I found this on Forest City Fashionista, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

  • I love it! Great interview video find!

  • Suella

    She is great, isn't she? I love her ethnographic clothing and accessories.

  • I have played & REplayed it. Fascintating, beautiful, stimulating, inspiring! I want to educate myself further re. Iris Apfel.

  • I went to see the exhibit twice at the Peabody Essex museum and was very inspired. I highly recommend the book "Rare Bird of Fashion" that accompanies the exhibit. You can find more about Iris over on my blog.

  • Thanks so much for visiting my blog–I've been a fan of yours for a while. Along with Debra from your blog, Iris Apfel is one of my style inspirations for my "silver-haired years" I love her comment that "getting dressed in the morning should be a creative expression"

  • Iris is a real icon- what a wonderful, youthful spirit she is! Her style, attitude and vision are quite unique.
    This video really moved and inspired me. Thank you for sharing.

  • She's delightful! Thank you for posting this. I think I am going to print out her quote to hang in my closet: "The fun of getting dressed is that it's a creative experience… Have fun with it!" Love that.

  • Awesome! What a great post!

  • so beautiful.

  • Thank you so much for this. I love how deeply respectful she is in this video of the cultures she's drawn to. So often, I hear wealthy white people say condescending things about the "simplicity" of tribal wear, and she is deeply admiring of the sophistication and architectural qualities. So refreshing.

  • Fantaglamorous! thanks for the video!

  • thank you for finding and posting this…I met her many years ago and she is a truly amazing person.
