She first introduced her brand to the fashion scene in 2007. Four years later she became a regular participant in the prestigious Paris Fashion Week, where she presents her haute couture collections to this day. The pioneer of 3D printing in the fashion industry decided to use cutting-edge technology as one of the main principles of her work. Meet Iris van Herpen - a visionary who pushes the boundaries of fashion design!
The Dutch designer, born June 5, 1984, is one of the most talented fashion designers of today. In her work, she uses 3D printing as a basic clothing technology, utilizing her talent and creativity to transform models into works of art.
Iris van Herpen's aim is to connect the past with the future and give the models a touch of the present. Each of the unique models goes through the designer's own hands. Their journey doesn't end only with regular clientele - some are worn by Hollywood stars. The list of celebrities who enjoy these luxurious 3D dresses is actually quite long!
Iris van Herpen created several models for singer Björk's tour. Celine Dior, Rita Ora, Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, Naomi Campbell, Solange Knowles, Natalia Vodianova, Cate Blanchett, Tilda Swinton, Cara Delavingne and Gwendoline Christie also wear her luxurious creations.
Iris van Herpen's models are not only unique, but also sought after! Six of her models are on display at the Metropolitan Museum in New York, more can be found at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and the Palais de Tokyo in Paris.
Looking at the last haute couture collection Hypnosis introduced a few weeks ago, we can't but take off our hats. This is exactly what the fashion world needs right now - a collection full of femininity, subtlety, sophistication and a unique aesthetic vision!
I have always loved originality and I especially value people who are not afraid to walk the path less traveled, against the stream. Classic fashion is always nice to see, but what stands out will remain imprinted in our minds… This is how the young designer Iris van Herpen can be best described in a nutshell.
Haute Couture at the Paris Fashion Week, moreover in 3D, that's what I call a spectacle! I do have to admit that most of it is not exactly my cup of tea, because I prefer not to add layers to my hips - I rather attempt to optically shrink them (hahaha), but the rippled long-sleeved black and white dress is something I wouldn't say no to and I'd like to shock people, wearing it at some kind of event. Wouldn't you? In Czeh Republic, celebrities have yet to discover Iris.
And the rest? A stunning myriad of creativity that will surely fill the wardrobes of wealthy artists not only from Paris, but also from New York Soho.
