Iris Van Herpen: The Alexander McQueen Of Tech Geeks
As one blogger put it: “I think we just found our next fashion legend. HO. LY. SHIT.
Van Herpen manipulates technology to test all the limits of fashion. Creating pieces by combining modern techniques and traditional sewing.
Even if you don’t have a great deal of interest about fashion technology, this stuff is worth looking at . New ideas and digital technology are already having a great deal of input into the industry, whether you’re talking digitally printed fabric or 3-D creations. It will only become more exaggerated and prominent. Van Herpens’ work, is like a sneak peek into the future about where the fashion world is headed.
New Horizons design project for EABurns using my inspirations of feathers, smoke and other natural things interpreted into some quirky prints in bright colours, which will go into panels and sections of my designs. So the collection consists of 6 outfits all of which would be made in responsibly sourced and preferably organic cotton, silk and wool. Starting on the left, a just above the knee pleated full skirt and printed blouse with a peter pan collar, no 2. Is a digitally printed, mid calf full skirt with a high waist and a blue, cropped jumper. No 3. Is simple white long sleeved blouse with a yellow knit short sleeve jumper and printed floaty cotton shorts, the 4th outfit is a simple day dress with print paneling in a spotty print. No 5. Is a light silk, digitally printed floor length number with a cut-away hem and finally the last outfit is a red knit low neck jumper, with a feather printed shirt and grey trousers with printed panels and pockets.
So these are my final prints For my New Horizons project for EABurns using my inspirations of feathers, smoke and other natural things interpreted into some quirky prints in bright colours, which will go into panels and sections of my designs. Hopefully collection line-up will be uploaded later.
