This week, I  have had the most amazing time working backstage at IRIS VAN HERPEN’s fashion show “Between The Lines” during Paris Couture Fashion week!


After months of preparing the collection consisting of 16 looks which feature 3d hand casted silicone, injection moulding, laser cut mylar and leather and many more traditional techniques, the show, held in the Maison des Métallos, Paris, was over in no time. While castings were held days before the show, last minute changes and fittings were made in the Atelier while the breathtaking catwalk installation has been planned out and built at the show location. Thanks to the amazing IVH Team I got to work with, the show was a great success for everyone and definitely has been a memorable experience.
