Iris van Herpen's translucent dress imitates water in its clear and splash-like aesthetics. She bases the dress on the idea that dresses of the future might just be intangible -- fabric that is made of non-materials.
The dresses pictured are both visualizations and taken from other Iris van Herpen's collections. The actual water dress project is set to be a surprise as none of the material details have been revealed. SHOWstudio is scheduled to display the dress at an exhibit in June. They also plan on streaming it live for those who can't make the show.
It would certainly take a brave woman to rock clothing that is made to look like water. Such a translucent dress does not allow you to hide anything.
