Strike a Pose #5: Iris


event Details

Join us for a series of film screenings about the fascinating fashion industry introduced by fashion expert Angela Lassig, who puts modern-day haute couture and street apparel into historic perspective.

Veteran documentary maestro Albert Maysles’ Iris (2014) is a captivating salute to the legendary New York clothes connoisseur and design darling Iris Apfel. Apfel began cultivating her extraordinary sense of personal style early on. By the 21st century she had become an unlikely style icon, her striking look being celebrated in fashion magazines as well as exhibitions.

 “What makes the sharp-as-a-tack nonagenarian Apfel such splendid company is that beneath the busy prints and multi-layered accessories is a woman who is less an eccentric than an ineffably sane, sensible commentator on her own colorful life and the world she inhabits.” – The Hollywood Reporter
