OUT AND ABOUT: I’m very happy to be going to the Bounds Green Bowls and Tennis Club, off Brownlow Road, N11, tonight, to see this documentary about the incredible woman called Iris Apfel.
There’s a competition for the best Iris lookalike too – don’t think I’ll pass muster but might try.Doors and bar open 19.00, main event 19.30
And then of course, filled with sartorial inspiration, I expect everyone will be visiting the Knitting and Stitching Show this weekend on at Ally Pally.
IRIS pairs legendary 87-year-old documentarian Albert Maysles with Iris Apfel, the quick-witted, flamboyantly dressed 93-year-old style maven who has had an outsized presence on the New York fashion scene for decades. More than a fashion film, the documentary is a story about creativity and how, even in Iris’ dotage, a soaring free spirit continues to inspire.
KNITTING AND STITCHING SHOW – Alexandra Palace: 7th-11th October Open: 10am-5.30pm
