Iris van Herpen is a Dutch fashion designer who is widely recognized as one of fashion’s most forward-thinking creators, continuously pushing boundaries of both fashion and design.
After graduating 2006 from the ArtEZ and founding her own label only one year later, van Herpen became a guest member of the Parisian Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture, part of the Fédération Française de la Couture, and has continuously shown her new collections at the Paris Haute Couture Week since January 2011.
Every collection is the embodiment of a new understanding of materiality and femininity. Her garments are imbued with the complex layers of reality that come from both the inner and outer worlds.
Throughout her career, she has worked with extraordinary muses like Cate Blanchett, Beyoncé, Scarlett Johansson, Lady Gaga and Naomi Campbell.
