,,WHEN I NEEDED TO WEAR GLASSES, I DECIDED I’D WEAR GLASSES. ALL THE BETTER TO SEE YOU WITH.”
Style is ,,attitude, attitude, attitude,” Iris Apfel says. “It ain’t what you do, it’s what you do with it.” The 92-year-old style icon, fashion designer, interior designer and TV entrepreneur sat down with T magazine editor-in-chief Deborah Needleman at the Museum of Arts and Design to discuss her surprise rise to fame in 2005 with “Rara Avis,” an exhibition of her clothing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the line of affordable accessories she hawks on the Home Shopping Network. In between, she shared musings on life, style and the pursuit of happiness.
