Iris Apfel. One of the most recognized faces in the world of fashion today, she continues to inspire us with her self confidence and imagination. She brings a fun element of fantasy into a world where it is sometimes lacking. Born in Queens in the 1920's, Iris is a celebrated interior designer who over the years has worked at the White House for nine presidents: Truman, Eisenhower, Nixon, Kennedy, Johnson, Carter, Reagan and Clinton. Over the past few years her success has reached new heights with jewelry, makeup, handbag and shoe lines. Eric Boman has captured the true essence of Iris in his book Rare Bird of Fashion; an in depth look into the fabric, designers, and elements of what truly sets Iris apart. We are continually inspired and look toward letting our own originality shine through just a little more, when we think of The lovely Mrs. Apfel.
