Irene Price

Aged 18 Irene hadn’t planned to be a model; she was working at a furrier when she was asked to fill in and model some of the coats and that started her modelling career.

Irene mostly did runway work travelling to places such as Saks on 5th Avenue in New York. She also danced and sang on the stage.

She once lost a job for refusing to dye her hair platinum blond and remembers being sewn into the clothes making it very hard to move.

She met her husband in Paris and was happy to leave her modelling career behind.

Aged 90 Irene now lives at St Faith’s in Cheltenham, with the same stunning smile she is seen here enjoying a cheese and wine afternoon.
