The Book Club present an exclusive preview screening of IRIS, the new documentary about the 93 year-old style icon Iris Apfel.
Iris Apfel, the quick-witted, flamboyantly dressed 93-year-old style maven has had an outsized presence on the New York fashion scene for decades. IRIS, the new documentary by legendary filmmaker Albert Maysles, portrays a singular woman whose enthusiasm for fashion, art and people reminds us that dressing, and indeed life, is nothing but an experiment.
In the words of the self proclaimed “geriatric starlet”, ‘the worst faux pas in fashion is to look in a mirror and see somebody else’. Taking inspiration from Iris' maverick attitude, following the screening, join Pandora Sykes
(Fashion Features Editor at The Sunday Times Style), Sue Kreitzman
(star of the documentary Fabulous Fashionistas and one of Selfridges Bright Old Things), Davey Sutton
(freelance stylist) and Kim Howells
(Fashion Director at Hunger magazine) for a discussion on personal style, self expression and dressing just to please yourself.
