Here she is…Iris Apfel… our special guest for the Atelier Swarovski party at Parterre. How appropriate that this fashion legend and beloved “out and about” lady would be in attendance for this first ever appearance (for both Swarovski and Iris) in Newport… offering jewelry counsel, dispensing compliments, and charming us all.
By the way, Iris’ designs for the special Atelier collection will be coming out in a few months. Can you only imagine? I’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, enjoy this sneak peek of a lovely afternoon shopping privately in Newport ( a portion of the proceeds benefited the maintenance of the gardens and grounds of the stunning properties of the Preservation Society of Newport County, like The Breakers, The Elms and Marble House).
Aaaah to be Iris, who’s been collecting jewelry for almost all of her 95 years.
