With the very entertaining read 'Iris Apple: Style is not a question of age', Midas Collection gives us an in-depth look at the 97-year-old style icon through photos and quotations in a handy, reader-friendly format. Iris Apfel became known especially in the US through her appearances on the Internet and TV and was the subject of Director Albert Maysles' documentary 'Iris'. The American style icon became famous internationally for her extravagant public appearances and is revered for her age. She meanwhile has a broad fan base here in Germany and uses Instagram as a platform for her everyday fashion, designs her own pieces of furniture, and even has her own Barbie doll. Embracing the credo: 'More is more, and less is a bore'.
At the beginning of her career, she worked for Women's Wear Daily, interior designer Elinor Johnson, and illustrator Robert Goodman. In 1948, she married Carl Apfel (1914-2015), with whom she founded the textile company Old World Weavers in 1950, where she worked until her retirement in 1992. During this time, she also had contracts with the White House in Washington, D.C.
Her exhibition 'Rara Avis' on fashion and accessories at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2005 was the first of its kind dedicated by the museum to a person who was still living and not a fashion designer.
Midas Publishing thought it was high time, in the era of juvenile grandeur and wrinkle-free fashion photographs, to look into a lady who not only brings style to the table but can also draw from a wealth of experience – with the wit and candor of the 97-year-old Grande Dame we love so much. The Midas Collection was founded in 2014 and comprises the themes of design, photography, art and fashion.
