Designer Dress Looks Like Splashed-On Water [Pics]
Iris van Herpen creates a couture piece that resembles flowing liquid.
Fashion designer Iris van Herpen collaborated with photographer Nick Knight to create a dress that looks like flowing water. Knight used high-speed cameras to capture black and clear water being thrown on the model. Van Herpen will then use the images as an inspiration to design a one-off couture piece.
Van Herpen explained that:
The water-dress symbolises for me the incomprehensible magic of the body. I often wonder if we will keep on wearing fabrics in future, or if dressing will become something non-material, something that is visible, but not tangible or touchable.
