Fashion Craftsman

When i first saw Iris van Herpen's designs, i automatically thought of Alexander McQueen. It was so perfectly... crafted! And i would say this is the exact explanation of the designing process - old fashion crafting technique plus innovations. As McQueen was a king of tailoring, so van Herpen is a classic craftsmanship queen. She was actually interning at Alexander McQueen in London before opening her own label in 2007. 27 years old Dutch based designer creates dresses with organic curves and curled tentacles from plexiglas, antique bronze, latex or lampshade fabric. Her last couture collection was presented on a first day of Paris Fashion Week, and was inspired by the teeming, invisible world of the microscopic.

Iris van Herpen doesn't have a pret-a-porter line yet, and her couture dresses are made to order. Lady Gaga and Bjork are among designer's fans. But there is a good news - you can get designers shoes without placing a special order. And these shoes are the ones to die for. Do they remind you of fabulous McQueen designs?
