97 year young, Iris Apfel recently signed an iconic contract with international modeling agency IMG. Our hats off to CEO’s Patrick Whitesell and Ari Emanual for seeing beyond a number and recognizing the power of beauty and style regardless of age. Mrs. Apfel had a Barbie doll created in her image at the age of 96 and has had a successful career as a businesswoman, interior designer and fashion icon. We hope to speak with Iris soon to talk about her life and share it with all of you!
