Ninety-six-year-old American fashion icon Iris Apfel has had a varied career spanning many decades. In 1950, she and her late husband Carl founded Old World Weavers, a textile company; the couple ran it until 1992, when both of them retired. Among many other accomplishments, Iris participated in restoration projects at the White House for no fewer than nine first ladies. Documentary filmmaker Albert Maysles directed a biographical movie about Iris; the eponymous film, “Iris,” premiered in 2015.
