Fashion meets art at a whole new level! Couturier Iris Van Herpen is joining forces with Nick Knight and Daphne Guinness in creating a new ‘Crystallization’ dress – coming soon in a live broadcast on SHOWstudio. Unveiling the UBER talented designer’s artistic process (in-progress), Knight will capture Guinness being splashed with black and clear water using high speed cameras, then offer up the footage as reference imagery of Van Herpen creating a one-of-a-kind dress.
Showing off Iris’s ability to combine archaic crafts with futuristic technologies to create a shape shifting garment that defies logic, the collaboration will take our senses to a whole new creative level. Additionally, Viewers from around the globe can submit questions to the designer and probe her inspirations, techniques and aspirations. Artist Geoffry Lillemon and sound artist Salvador Breed will also participate in the project and use Knight’s footage to create a film and soundscape to accompany van Herpen’s dress. In a final sensory climax, Knight will shoot Guinness in the completed dress live on camera. Absolutely can’t wait to see what’s to unfold. Brigitte Segura.
