“Sometimes a fabric feels dead to me…
I try to really bring transformation and life into my work and it’s hard because clothes
and fabrics aren’t made to live but that’s maybe my ultimate dream.” she said!
Iris Van Herpen can be inspired by any patterns in nature and express it!
From plant membranes, feathers, fossils, fins, bubbles, to …sound waves, are just some of many stimuli for her collections!!!
“…it is not really me that I’m looking for, but my connection to the rest of the world around me…” she describes her work.
