Iris Van Herpen was born in 1984 in Wamel, the Netherlands. Having graduated in 2006 from the ArtEZ Institute of the Arts Arnhem, she made her name at Alexander McQueen in London before presenting her first collection in 2007 in Amsterdam. In 2011 her avant-garde designs attracted the attention of the Chambre syndicale de la Haute Couture, of which she is now a guest member. That same year, she was chosen by Björk to create the dresses worn on the cover of her album Biophilia, and her 3d printed dress was listed in TIME magazine as one of the fifty most important inventions of the year. In 2012, Iris van Herpen was honored by the Groninger Museum, with an exhibition celebrating her original work, combining meticulous craftsmanship and innovative techniques. In March 2013, Iris Van Herpen will present her first ready-to-wear collection in Paris with artist and muse Canadian musician Grimes.
