World's largest fashion magazine, ELLE in United Kingdom, mentions Museum of Lifestyle & Fashion History regarding style icon Iris Apfel

The Museum of Lifestyle & Fashion History (MLFH) has reached the Continent of Europe with a mention in an editorial in ELLE Magazine, the United Kingdom edition.  ELLE, a French publication established in year 1945, is the world's largest fashion magazine with over 40 editions printed in 60 countries.

The December 20, 2011 on-line edition of ELLE profiles famed interior designer and style icon Iris Apfel and her new M.A.C products.  M.A.C, a cosmetics line, has coupled its brand with a limited-edition Iris Apfel 20-piece collection available on-line.

The Museum of Lifestyle & Fashion History comes into the picture with the news story because back in year 2008, we launched a capital campaign and announced plans for a permanent building with a gallery dedicated to Iris Apfel and all her stylish possessions. Monetary donations can still be made to MLFH for the gallery plans.

Written by Amy Lawrenson, Here is the ELLE news story.

What's more is that Cindy Adams of the Examiner.com has penned about the Iris Apfel M.A.C Collection.  Read it here.

Can you spare a $12 donation?  Donations can also be made by supporting MLFH with purchasing an annual membership.  Click here for the membership information. New members will receive a shopping coupon compliments of Hallmark at the Boynton Beach Mall. Please consider making the MLFH one of the charities to which you will give before the end of this year.

Your monetary support will help the operations of the exhibits and educational programs at MLFH.  Some of those programs include the MLFH school field trip program for children.  Back in year 2006, MLFH partnered with the Mathematics Department at the School District of Palm Beach County to develop the Mathematics in Design & History field trip program.  This math program infuses mathematical operations in the designs and shapes of historic items displayed at MLFH.  Students perform various mathematical operations that include Addition, Subtraction and Multiplication. For this math program, students also identify three-dimensional shapes, patterns and lines which all pertain to mathematics.
Visit MLFH at its current donated 8,000 square feet facility located inside the Boynton Beach Mall in Boynton Beach, FL USA  at 801 N. Congress Avenue, Suite 483  (Inside the Mall in the North Wing). 
MLFH is celebrating the holidays with a special Barbie Christmas for the Barbie history exhibit honoring Ken's 50th birthday; and also displayed is a Pink & Green Christmas Tree for the Queen of Prep: Lilly Pulitzer Rousseau exhibit.  And, opening this month is SCAASI: An Iconic American Fashion Designer.
MLFH's newest program is the Taste History Culinary Tour of Historic Delray Beach & Boynton Beach, Florida sponsored by Macy's. Due to popular demand, Taste History is now offered on the 3rd and 4th Saturday of each month plus private group tours are available.  Purchase tickets on-line.
