On The Avenue

A Celebration of Iris Apfel

Wednesday, September 7, 2016

She might describe herself as a late in life fashion icon, but Iris Apfel certainly knows how to party like she has always been a star. Last week, Apfel celebrated her 95th birthday, and the day after she celebrated both her birthday and the launch of her collection with INC at La Sirena Ristorante.

The event was attended by the Shaun Ross, Pandora Amoratis, Nancy Slavin and Mckenzie Johnson.

Apfel’s collection for the Macy’s-owned International Concepts is very 60s and mod inspired. Some of the products featured include a lace-sleeve tunic sweater, a printed shift dress, a lipstick and kisses printed blouse and floral print flared pants.

Apfel will be all around New York City beginning tomorrow for New York Fashion Week as she is scheduled to attend a roundup of runway shows including Monse and Naeem Khan.

Recently, she’s had a whole new introduction to the digital generation because there are now Iris Apfel emojis.

To the woman who says dressing for your age is stupid, here’s to a marvelous 95th year and a successful collaboration.
