Iris Van Herpen

Dominio impecable de la técnica y un uso creativo de diversos materiales, en una búsqueda constante de innovación, sin miedo a romper las reglas y los estándares, hace que su trabajo se catalogue como sublime y vanguardista.
Graduada en ARTEZ (Arnhem), trabajo con Alexander McQueen en Londres y para Claudy Jongstra en Amsterdam.

“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.

In all my work I try to make clear that fashion is an artistic expression, showing and wearing art, and not just a functional and devoid of content or commercial tool. With my work I intend to show that fashion can certainly have an added value to the world, that it is timeless and that its consumption can be less important then its beginning. Wearing clothing can create a very 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.”
