The living legend currently has more than 1.7 million followers on her Instagram account. She has also proved that in the fashion industry style and elegance have no age limit.

Born in New York City in 1921, Apfel grew up during the Great Depression.

She discovered a brooch she really wanted in a basement shop in Greenwich Village in New York when she was 11. It cost $0.65, and she kept every penny she could find to finally purchase it.

It was her first shopping experience, and it began one of the largest private jewellery collections in the United States.

Even at this age, Apfel is still not thinking to step back from active working life. She continues to work as an interior designer.
