When I was living in NYC, I happened upon an exhibit featuring an eccentric fashion icon named Iris ApfelThe exhibit was called Rare Bird, a title that only begins to describe the collection of clothes that were on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

I became enamored with Iris — along with half of New York City, I presume — and was recently thinking back on the experience with awe. Then the other day, I found this GREAT video of Iris being interviewed and filmed while shopping.

My favorite thing about Iris Apfel is that she views fashion with so much energy and shows no fear in doing what she wants with it!
