Iris van Herpen, the Dutch Alexander MQueen is one of Holland’s best fashion designers. The very talented futuristic Iris is what you call an rising star in the fashion scene. She per claimed her fame by appearing in Vogue and designing shoes in collaboration with United Nude.
Her clothes are worn by fashion lovers like Lady gaga, Kim Kardashian, Solange Knowles and the Icelandic singer/songwriter Björk. Björk even shot a cover and a music video wearing her designs. Iris van Herpen designs aren´t made to be worn (though she often designs ready to wear clothes and shoes to pay for her costs).Her designs have a geometic, futuristic almost art like feeling, made possible by crafting the designs mostly by hand or by using 3D scanners on materials such as steel and plastic . That’s why I love her designs because they are so innovative and Avant Garde.Oh, did I also mention she went to the same High School as I did?
