A "rare bird of fashion"

My mom sent me this article from The Boston Globe regarding an upcoming fashion exhibition at the Peabody Essex Museum (PEM). The show highlights the fashion collection of Iris Apfel, an 88 year old fashionista. Check out this video for more.


I think this picture says it all about her style. I am definitely going to head to the PEM to see this show- on view October 17, 2009 through February 7, 2010.


More images of the show here.
