Iris Apfel has been my fashion inspiration for as long as I can remember. She invokes the spirit of a woman that has decided to do things the unconventional way and seems to enjoy herself in everything she does.
She is made of the same ilk as the likes of Peggy Guggenheim and its no wonder that two of my favourite documentaries feature both women.
From running the textile firm Old World Weavers with her husband to completing several White House restoration projects for numerous presidents, she has lived a truly accomplished life.
In celebration of Iris, we list our top 5 reasons why she is our number 1 #stylebae.
