Fashion on the high seas

Cunard has announced that fashion royalty Iris Apfel will join its line-up of fashion icons set to sail onboard Queen Mary 2 for the cruise line’s second annual Transatlantic Fashion Week (Aug. 31 – Sept. 7). At 95, Apfel is a jet-setting celebrity known for her individual style and joyful flair. Featured in cutting-edge style campaigns for Macy’s, MAC, Kate Spade, Swarovski and other big-name brands, she has become renowned for her signature look of bold round glasses, oversized bangles and necklaces, and rich, flamboyant, colourful garments. Over the course of Transatlantic Fashion Week, Apfel will be presenting one Q&A session and will introduce a showing of “Iris,” a documentary featuring fashion, creativity and her soaring free spirit.
