A Winner

20th October 2013

Iris Van Herpen was awarded the overall winner in the Dutch Design Awards last night for her outstanding fashion which I have always been a huge fan of.

The jury were particularly impressed by how van Herpen always 'succeeds in giving so much body to her work, without any loss of experiment and challenge. With her designs she shows better than anybody else what is going on in the Netherlands at the moment.’

Dutch Design is always unique and known for its experimental and materials based approach which van Herpen has managed to explore brilliantly through the medium of fashion.

Unfortunately the fabulous Lex Pott did not win, but I am delighted that
The Future Concepts Award went to The Incredible Shrinking Man by Arne Hendriks who explores a more sustainable future whereby man shrinks to fit with global population issues and food shortages.

I use this blog as a notebook of inspirations – I post things I see and like and thoughts of mine. I don't revolve around a singular topic and neither does this blog. Everything and anything is relevant
