At the end of February, I went to the Phoenix Art Museum for the opening of a new exhibit called "Transforming Fashion". It featured designs exclusively by Dutch designer, Iris van Herpen.
The show featured 45 ensembles created between 2008 and 2015.
Obviously, these designs are not meant to be worn by fashion-minded women. I believe the only time they were worn by a real model was when they were first shown at a fashion show.
Even at those fashion shows, I'm betting that wearing these designs was a bit of a trial for the model.
There was a video playing in the gallery of models actually wearing these pieces. They had to do it very carefully.
There were so many truly outrageous designs in the show but I think I'll end with this one.
I do believe wearing this outfit would destroy any hope of getting a dance partner and I'd be very, very careful bending over to pick something up.
Many of the clothes in this collection were made with a 3-D printer instead of cloth and needle and thread.
What do you think?
Tomorrow I'll show you some of the shoes in the collection!
