Fashion is the one industry where name-dropping is totally acceptable. The problem is, in the mist of name dropping you can miss out on some fabulous designers. Iris Van Herpen may not immediately ring a bell but you may be more familiar with her work than you are giving yourself credit for. Iris Van Herpen has designed incredible creations for Beyonce, Lady Gaga, and Bjork.
Needless to say, I was excited when I got an invitation from the Cincinnati Art Museum to preview their new exhibit. It showcases 45 exquisite outfits from 15 collections and nine pairs of shoes. The exhibition also includes examples of van Herpen’s innovative materials, with examples available for visitors to touch. It’s one thing to see these designs on the pages of magazines and on the red carpet. The camera does not do the intricate detail and craftsmanship that goes into these garments justice, it’s truly inspirational.
