During Fashion Week Iris Apfel - design legend, rare bird, and Fashion in Film guest of honor - invited us into her home. At her table, piled high with birthday flowers, we talked for hours over tea and sandwiches. She is resplendent, undulled by 92 years of hard work and exploration. When recalling clothes from the past, her arms and hands traced imaginary outlines in a way that made us see them. She says she hasn't changed since her younger years, and we believe it. The lady is a dish. She's also a well of experience and wisdom.
(Editor's note: Some answers are condensed for brevity's sake. Iris can spin a yarn.)
