Iris Apfel turns 95 today and according to her wisdom, great personal style is about knowing yourself, staying curious, and maintaining a sense of humor. Her long career as an interior designer and textile maker has taken her to Tunisian bazaars in pursuit of rare antique fabrics to The White House to head up restoration project for the Kennedys. The Costume Institute at the Met showcased her explosive, exuberant personal collection of accessories, fabrics and garments in 2005 and the documentary about her life, Iris, is available on Netflix, FYI.
Happy birthday, gorgeous!
