Style icon,Iris Apfel, 97 years-young has just signed with IMG models, argueably the biggest fashion and beauty agency in the business.
She has already starred in big-name campaigns such as Kate Spade and Macy’s but up to now has booked her own gigs.
When asked by WWD about the news, she’s ‘very excited’ about her new deal.
‘I never expected my life would take this turn so I never prepared for it. It all just happened so suddenly, and I thought at my tender age, I’m not going to set up offices and get involved with all kinds of things,’ she said.
‘I thought it was a flash in the pan, and it’s not going to last. Somehow, people found me. People would just call. Tommy Hilfiger said that was no way to do it, and he put us together. I’m very excited and very grateful.’
