Iris Apfel is a fashion icon as she shows that fashion and clothing choice doesn’t have to get worse when you get older, in her case its gotten better over time. She also doesn’t feel like age should get the better of you as she has stated in one her interviews ‘ I don’t see anything wrong with a wrinkle.Its kind of a badge of courage’ This quote should be inspiring to the older generations as they try to stop their wrinkles showing by getting face lifts and botox.
Iris Apfel’s clothing is out there and different from everyone else’s as she inspires to be different from everyone. ‘ Theres no how-to road map to style. It’s about self-expression and,above all attitude.’ What she says here gives people the courage to dress how they want to as they do not have to impress anyone but themselves. She also says that there is no instruction manual on what is right and what is wrong to wear.
