World-class exhibitions set amidst iconic architecture
October 23, 2016-January 15, 2017
Iris van Herpen: Transforming Fashion features 45 one-of-a-kind haute couture looks by Dutch fashion designer, Iris van Herpen. Van Herpen is internationally acclaimed for her combination of traditional craftsmanship and futuristic, innovative techniques—including some of the world’s first examples of 3D-printed fashion. Her visually impressive, sculptural designs often feature unusual materials such as magnets, umbrella ribs, and synthetic boat rigging. Her work has been worn by style icons such as Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, and Bjork and has graced the runways of Amsterdam, London, and Paris. While always wearable, the young Dutch designer’s memorable fashions are as much sculpture as they are clothing.
