The spirit of neoteric fashion is embodied by the dynamic creativity of Iris Van Herpen designs.

Each creation by the Dutch designer incorporates other forms of art, going beyond fashion to infuse her creations with architectural, cultural and technology inspirations. From dresses that resemble splashes of water to macabre mummy-inspired garments, the design ethos of Iris Van Herpen designs adheres to consistent modernization. With her ability to transforming the archaic, Iris Van Herpen stands out as a contributor to couture's renaissance.
