The combination of craftsmanship and innovation of technique and materials makes her creations so special. You can say she makes futuristic couture. I guess this will also explain the name of the exposition. One of dresses which was really special was the one who’s made with a 3D printer. Iris likes to try new ways of designing, as long as the material is suitable for clothing. It must follow the shape of the body, also during movements.
Sometimes the meaning of an item is too obvious. I like it when you have to think twice about it. Or, when you ask yourself: “Wtf is the purpose?”. Iris van Herpen makes art where you think twice about (well, I read the explanation at the cart besides the piece). Too me, curious pieces makes me remember it and they inspire me.
