The Icon: Iris Apfel
She, who dares to battle the universal statement of 'less is more'.
She, who masters the skill of accessorizing.
She, who is best-known for her bold jewelries.
She is Iris Apfel, the fashion icon who is a great source of inspiration for not only in artistic and fashion terms, but also in constructing who you really are.
“If you put something together and it doesn’t look so good, the fashion police are not going to come a take you away. And if they do, you might have some fun in jail.”
Fashion is not governed by rules. Something one calls beauty doesn't mean another must agree upon.
Fashion is art, the subject which requires creativity - not something which answers contain in the solid rock.
“She [my mother] always said, if you have a good, little, simple black dress and you have different accessories, you can have 27 different outfits.”
"I think they should learn who they are and not try to fit into a mould that some magazine editor tells them they have to be. The world’s a big place, sniff it all out."
Grandma Apfel teaches us through her
over-the-edge style and that makes her a moving art. Some may consider this a special talent in rocking several pieces of statement jewelry in
But doesn't that what she says so constantly that we should find our identity and not let some strangers whose jobs called 'editors' command us what we should and should not wear?
Do what grandma says!
Try some bold look, create your own style.
