Iris van Herpen: Transforming Fashion

Complementing Iris van Herpen: Transforming Fashion is the immersive installation Philip Beesley: Transforming Space. Together, they take you on a captivating exploration into design, fashion, technology and the world around us.

Look beyond fashion and explore the endless possibilities that come from interweaving design, art, and technology in Iris van Herpen: Transforming Fashion. Featuring original designs by Dutch designer and couturier, Iris van Herpen, this exhibition explores her 2008-2015 collections that push the boundaries of traditional fashion and craftsmanship.

With designs that have earned international acclaim, van Herpen’s bold creations have been at the forefront of experimentation and collaboration. From metal umbrella ribs and magnets to working with leading architects, engineers and scientists, van Herpen creates extraordinary new shapes using innovative materials and inventive technologies such as 3D printing, to create stunning, mystifying haute couture.

Past collaborations include her work with one of Canada’s most forward-thinking architects, Philip Beesley. Sharing a mutual fascination for materials and structures, van Herpen and Beesley have influenced and contributed to one another’s work to push the boundaries of design and how we think about it.

Every one of us are profoundly impacted by our childhood and by our condition. We dress a specific way; we like certain nourishments; we carry on in a specific way. Why? To a limited extent, on account of the impact of the general population around us and our conditions throughout everyday life.
