From Twisted Coil Booties To Gravity-Defying Couture

 - Jul 23, 2012
These Iris van Herpen creations show how the designer is pushing the boundaries of avant-garde fashion. After interning with Alexander McQueen, the Danish designer started her own label in 2007 and has since been making a name for herself mixing technology and creativity. From gravity-defying couture to 3D Flower Petal Fashions, van Herpen's designs were created with mixing the digital technology of 3-D printing and handwork. The combination of old and new is what makes Iris van Herpen a designer to follow.

Breathtakingly fantastical frozen fashion marches down her runway shows stealing the audience's imaginations with their gorgeous details. Though, Iris van Herpen truly steps it up when she creates statement piece shoes. Whether it be her carnivorous high heels or chained-up booties, these stilettos are killer.

Iris van Herpen's apparel is truly haute couture whether it is being captured in chic Parisian-glam photoshoots across magazine pages or being shown in sculptural style galleries at the Groninger Museum.
