I was first introduced to Dutch Fashion Designer Iris van Herpen this year at the Voici Paris! Haute Couture at Den Haag. I immediately fell in love with her intricately pleated sculptural fashion. Impressed then, I’m mesmerized now with her current 10 piece collection “Crystallization” inspired by the process of water transforming into crystal.
For one of her pieces, Iris van Herpen, in collaboration with architect Daniel Widrig, crafts a 3D printed garment that appears akin to an exoskeleton draped along on the model’s frame. Simply breathtaking!
Check out the rest of her collection on ftape or watch the video below.
