as part of her “Hybrid Holism” AW 2012/2013 collection
Dutch designer Iris van Herpen, in collaboration with architect Julia Koerner, has once again teamed up with Materialise and .MGX in the creation of a stunning 3D printed dress as part of her “Hybrid Holism” AW 2012/2013 collection. The dress, compared by a spectator to ‘liquid honey’, marks the third collaboration of Iris with Materialise and .MGX.
Iris van Herpen was inspired by the architect Philip Beesley and his ‘Holozolic Ground’ project for the creation of this collection.
Iris van Herpen began her career in 2006 as an intern with Alexander McQueen. Since starting her own label in 2007, she has picked up a string of awards, has been elected a guest-member by the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture, has seen her clothing worn by trend-setting celebrities such as Björk and Lady Gaga, and has had her 3D printed dresses named as one of the 50 Best Inventions of 2011 by TIME Magazine.
