Iris Overview

Fashion icon Iris Apfel is profiled in this documentary. A fashion entrepreneur and interior designer, with trademark owlish eyeglasses, Iris has informed style and taste through the years. As a cultural marker, the flamboyant and opinionated Iris helped redecorate and/or restore design antiquities at the White House for nine presidents.

Still hard at work at 93, still quick with a quip and an opinion, Iris' story is told from her upbringing in Queens, New York during the Great Depression to her introduction to fashion with Women’s Wear Daily and the establishment of a long-running textile company with her husband Carl Apfel.
