Electricity inspired collection
For her fourth collection presented in Paris as a guest member of the Chambre syndicale de la Haute Couture, Dutch designer Iris Van Herpen explores the theme of electricity. Named Voltage, this collection seeks to imitate electricity movement and power. This ability of light and electricity to change states and matters was reinvented and poetically reproduced in an oneiric way using the most innovative technologies.
3D Printed Couture
Iris van Herpen is well known for her use of 3D printing in her collections, endlessly pushing back the creativity and technologies limits. Her flexible 3D printed dresses are, in itself, a revolution, and the fruit of her collaboration with Neri Oxman of the MIT Media Lab, Keren Oxman and Prof. Craig Carter of MIT with Stratasys, and architect Julia Koerner with Materialise.
