Style icon Iris Apfel, started her career as an interior designer. One day she stumbled upon a vintage pattern she couldn’t find but just had to have. She found a weaver to weave the fabric for her. That weaver would later be one of the founders of Old World Weavers with Iris and her husband Carl. The company flourished in the 42 years of being in business. Iris worked on various design restoration projects for different museums. The restorations in the White House for nine seating presidents were definitely her most memorable.
Last weekend I wanted to enjoy the fact that spring is here and summer is around the corner. While walking trough the city, a couple of kids came up to me with a box filled with selfmade art works which they were selling.
So I’ve been back to wearing sweaters and gloves for a week now. This means that city life started again while I still have withdrawal symptoms from the Caribbean sunshine and ever-present island breeze.
On my second day of fashion week I rolled out of bed late because, well…. I had gone to bed the night before just as the sun rose and was melting away the little amount of snow that Amsterdam was blessed with. My boyfriend’s place is minutes away from the twice annual fashion pilgrimage of the Netherlands.
