American fashion icon Iris Apfel has passed away at the grand age of 102. Known for her distinctive outfits and large glasses, Apfel significantly influenced and shaped the fashion world for decades.

The extravagant fashion designer and interior decorator, who referred to herself as a “geriatric starlet,” leaves a profound void in the industry.

Iris Apfel died last Friday, as announced on her Instagram account, which boasts 2.9 million followers. Just a day before her death, she had posted on this platform.

Born in 1921 in Queens, New York, and raised in a Jewish milieu, Apfel made a name for herself as an interior decorator after her art history studies, including working for nine U.S. presidents at the White House.

The fashion industry mourns one of its most dazzling personalities, who became a true icon with her unique aesthetic and unmistakable style.
