Some say that there is a strong connection between fashion and art, others disagree. Iris van Herpen is a perfect example of how fashion and art come hand in hand with each other.

Iris van Herpen was born 1984 in Wamel, The Netherlands. After studying Fashion Design at ARTEZ (Arnhem) and completing an internship with Alexander McQueen and Claudy Jongstra, Iris created her label ‘Iris van Herpen’ in 2007.









Iris van Herpen portrays the true meaning of craftsmanship and innovation in technique and materials. She creates a new direction of couture that combines fine handwork techniques with futuristic digital technology. The label pushes boundaries and forces fashion to the extreme contradiction between beauty and regeneration to express and underline individuality.

 For me fashion is an expression of art that is very close related to me and to my body. I see it as my expression of identity combined with desire, moods and cultural setting. Iris van Herpen
