Digital Couture 2

27th January 2011

With all eyes on the couture shows and the latest offerings from the key fashion houses and following the discussing and admiring of the number of stones sewn on by hand by skilled craftspeople - it is delightful to see on of my favourite designers Iris Van Herpen and her first couture show.

Working again with architect Daniel Widrig, Herpen has yet again created a series of striking and influential designs that sit somewhere between fashion and product.

Digitally printed using 3D rapid prototyping, hybrid garments are styled alongside other unconventional materials such as metal and silk blends.

Inspired by the sculptures of American artist, Kris Kuks, Herpen yet again steals the show and continues to offer a glimpse of the future of fashion and the future atelier.

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
