The Dutch fashion designer Iris van Herpen showed off her collection "Micro" on Monday during the Haute Couture Week in Paris.
As always, Van Herpen has used unconventional materials. In collaboration with artist Bart Hess she has developed a translucent snake skin and materials such as copper and transparent are used as alternatives. The "Micro" collection shows the beauty from the strange and fascinating world of organisms from a microscopic point of view. The designer found inspiration in the scientific SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope) photos from Scientific Photographer Steve Gschmeissner. SEM is a technique that could magnify organisms to one million times and make the unseen world around us visible.
With her unique designs and sophisticated technology once again she managed to create the impression in all fashion press.
