Favorite Haute Couture Shows – Iris Van Herpen Fall/Winter 11

The concept of a water dress may seem like an oxymoron to most designers, but Iris van Herpen is not most designers. A true creative thinker who loves to experiment with digital technology, she had teamed up with Nick Knight’s fashion film website SHOWstudio to create a Crystallization dress inspired by water. Van Herpen told SHOWstudio, “I grew up near the water so it has always been my view and my playground…As a fashion designer it is not really possible to work with it. It’s nice to have found a way to be inspired by it.”
