Iris Van Herpen is Dutch is widely recognised as one of fashion’s most forward thinking creators, who utilises 3D printing and laser cutting as a garment construction technique. One look at her work and you are hypnotised by the complex patterns that makes the garments on the runway look so ethereal and unreal. The way that she has created these pieces is through her signature parametric patterning which was achieved through laser cutting.
Iris Van Herpen, Fall, 2019
This runway was inspired by the slowing down of movement of birds. The runway was very ethereal as the pieces bounced lightly along with the model as they walked, and the installation above adding to the slowness of a bird’s flight.
Iris Van Herpen, Hypnosis
In hypnosis, the movement of the garment created an illusion that was very eye-catching.
