Iris van Herpen: Transforming Fashion

Superstar fashion designer Iris van Herpen specializes in optical illusions. In her hands, a dress has the translucency and texture of a jellyfish, or else mimics the movement of flowing water. Chemical Crows, a sinuous uniform fit for a warrior queen, is constructed from children’s umbrellas and cowhide.

On display alongside van Herpen’s couture is an installation from architect Philip Beesley, whose sculptural examples of responsive architecture move just as hypnotically. Find out more in our Fashion File coverage.
