Iris Apfel

Iris Apfel is my favourit fashion person,She has a wounderful attitude to fashion. Meaning she wears what she feels good in and what suites her body.She is fantastic with her accesories.She can turn a little black dress into a great out out fit.The older she gets the better she looks which means fashion never dies.

Iris Apfel

Here is my idol, Iris Apfel. At the age of 92 she still dresses like she is on a catwalk. She is a great inspiration for me and I hope when I get to her age my fashion will be as adventurous as her. These round glasses and bundles of chunky bangles are her trademark style, she adds to these by incorporating crazy patterns colour and textures. 


what an inspiration :)

This picture was taking at the national stud and Japanese gardens .We went there on our field trip . It was a great day out,we actually saw one horse but it was the most valuable horse they have.The gardens are really beautiful this time of the year with all the autumn colors. There are lots of trees ,shrubs,flowers,foliage,streams,water features,caves and steps.




There was lots of beautiful and interesting features to photograph and draw, so we had a busy time.At the Irish national stud  they erected a special monument there in memory of the Queens visit.We were disappointed we did not get to see the Museum.We went to The Museum of Style Icons now that was very interesting the clothes were fabulous so the cameras and pencils were out again.What I noticed was some of the trends of those times are back in fashion again,it goes to show good style never goes away.We spend a good bit of time there ,we had our lunch in the silver restaurant  it was  good and very reasonable well worth a visit. Now we are into our sixth week at collage ya im enjoying most of it really,the only thing I am really struggling with is the computer I have never used them before, Time is moving on projects are coming on stream so we are going to be busy,the fashon project will be very interesting but lots of work.
