Looking at a photo for Celine Dion, the title reads how thin she is, my thoughts were ‘What an amazing Dress!!’, I liked it so much. It’s smart and Elegant, most importantly, it tells how imaginative the designer is. Who is she?
Iris Van Herpen.
The Dutch fashion designer studied at ArtEZ University of the Arts, and lives in Amsterdam. Herpen started her fashion label in 2007. Her designs have been characterized as fantasy couture.
She is famous for using 3D printing as a garment construction technique. Through her designs she tries to blend the past and the future, the traditional couture craftsmanship alongside technology. Herpen has dressed many celebrities like Tilda Swinton, Cara Delvingne, Daphne Guinness, Miley Cyrus, Gwendoline Christie, Fan Bing Bing, Lady Gaga, Naomi Campbell. In films, she dressed Scarlet Johannsson in ‘Lucy’.
The body and female forms are my canvas to visualize the invisible, shaping a continuous dance between craftsmanship and innovation – Iris Van Herpen
The Question is ‘Can you imagine yourself wearing similar clothes and walking in the street, soon we all might like it? I can!
