“Colour can raise the dead.” —Iris Apfel

As a fashion icon, decorator and textile designer, 100-year-old Iris Apfel is a colorful figure with a highly celebrated career. So it comes as no surprise that her new Maximal Couture collection—a collaboration with Fabricut—is as vibrant, eclectic and fascinating as the maven herself. The fabrics are diverse—ranging from lux faux furs to striped velvets—and showcase exuberant colors, patterns and textures that beg to be layered in imaginative and innovative ways. In true Apfel style, her couture trims perform like dazzling jewelry that finish the textile offerings with wit and flair.
