Iris van Herpen is a Dutch fashion designer and is widely well known for her fashion creations. Always pushing the boundaries when it comes to designing each collection, she combines entirely different materials and garment construction methods bringing something totally different to the industry.

Herpen’s creations have been featured in various museum exhibitions worldwide, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York where a number of her dresses were showcased. For the 2017 Couture Spring/Summer collection the designs that hit the parisian catwalk were incredible and her show was one of the most talked about for sure. The designs were very futuristic and mesmerising as always.

The designer challenges herself each season to bring something so different but of course wearable. With her creative mind she certainly brings that to the table. The 2017 Spring/Summer collection was recently showed at fashion week and has been a huge hit for her. The pieces were designed to fall on the body of the models so naturally creating a perfect shape and fit, which is refreshing as some catwalks opt for the oversized fit.

The key words behind these dresses are ‘3D hand casting’. Many more dresses from the collection were of a normal design perhaps made from a silk tulle shaped with 3D hand cast lines. The designs were also hand painted, mixing technology and craft. Iris has created and developed her own way of designing and styling over the years, adding her futuristic ideas to each design making sure that she is on a different level in her mind of fashion.
