Fashion As An Expression Of Art

If we are talking about stunningly beautiful craftmanship and an innovative vision for avant-garde fashion design which embraces future digital technology, then we're talking about Iris Van Herpenwho recently presented her 2011 "Capriole" haute couture show in Paris. 
A graduate of the ArtEZ Art Academy, van Herpen has presented her eponymous fashion label at Amsterdam Fashion Week since 2007 and also brought her 'Synesthesia' collection to London Fashion Week in 2010. She counts Viktor & Rolf and Alexander McQueen among the designers she's worked with, capturing her unique and and larger-than-life aesthetics on designs which fuse beauty and the essence of regeneration.
Such is the hype about van Herpen, with critical acclaim for her work from fashion's heavyweights, it's no surprise that muse and eccentric style icon, Lady Gaga, was seen wearing one of van Herpen's leather art creations - an A/W 11 HC dress which was cleverly matched with United Nude's Synesthesia booties. But notice I'm deliberately not mentioning the lace shroud, not such a clever choice of accessorising....
