IRIS VAN HARPEN | PFW Haute Couture 2012/13 Day 2

Couture’s graceful aliens

Sculpted in organic body-armour of glinting copper, acrylic or leather, a cast of graceful aliens stepped out in their finest attire at the Iris Van Herpen haute couture show in Paris on Monday.

The avant-garde young Dutch designer draws much of her inspiration from the natural world, using computer-assisted design to create intricate 3D patterns that are then painstaking assembled by hand.
