Iris Apfel





Have any of you heard of this inspiring woman before? Well, I had not until I read a feature about here in ELLE magazine today. And I have to say - wow, what a woman! Iris Aphel is from New York and she is 90 years old and works as a designer, she has her own jewellery line, a makeup brand, she is making a documentary AND she manages all her around 40 phone calls and all her e-mails each day herself. I am impressed and have found my soul mate - I am telling you, this is me, in well.. Let's say 70 years. She is a fashion icon who has worked her way up to become a well known and trusted person in the fashion industry inspiring women all over the world. 

She also inspires me in what she says as she seems like a really wise and clever woman. When talking about fashion she said that "it's not how much it is, it is what it is" and then, which I liked even more "When I am going loony and need therapy I tell my husband - shopping is really cheaper than going to a psychiatrist".

"I don't think fashion is as flip as lots of people make it out to be. It's a very serious matter. It reflects what's going on in the world, the economy, sociology and the psychology of a certain period. The way you dress shows who you are and who you want to be."

If you haven't you really should read the feature about her in ELLE's december issue.
