When it comes to Iris van Herpen, normal rules just don’t apply. The Dutch fashion designer combines craftsmanship with innovation in techniques and materials. Her unique designs are a constrast between beauty and regeneration.

For me fashion is an expression of art that is very close related to me and to my body.
I see it as my expression of identity combined with desire, moods and cultural setting.” For van Herpen, fashion is the expression of character and emotions, fashion is an art.

With my work I intend to show that fashion can certainly have an added value to the world,  that it can be timeless and that its consumption can be less important then its beginning. Wearing clothing creates an exciting and imperative form of self-expression. ‘Form follows function’ is not a slogan with which I concur. On the contrary, I find that forms complement and change the body and thus the emotion. Movement, so essential to and in the body, is just as important in my work. By bringing form, structure and  materials together in a new manner, I try to suggest and realize optimal tension and movement.
