Iris von Arnim
About the Cashmere Queen. Her career as a fashion designer began in the 1970s after a car accident. While recovering from her injuries, her idle hands picked up a pair of knitting needles and thus began her journey into the fashion world. In 1976, she opened a small boutique in Munich, and by the end of the 1980s she was being hailed for “revolutionizing the German knitwear market”. Iris von Arnim clothes were different to anything the market had seen before - bright, bold colours and unusual designs caught the eyes of many fashion fanatics.
