Iris Van Herpen Wins Dutch Awards

The Dutch designer won in the fashion category and took away the main Golden Eye Award.

DOUBLE DUTCH: Iris Van Herpen has scooped up two prizes at the Dutch Design Awards.


The Dutch designer won in the Product-Best Fashion category with her Voltage couture collection featuring flexible 3-D printed garments, shown in Paris last January. She also took away the coveted main Golden Eye Award.


Van Herpen collaborated on the designs with architects Philip Beesley and Julia Koerner, as well as Neri Oxman, assistant professor of media arts and sciences at the MIT Media Lab.


“With Voltage, Van Herpen gives the world a view into the future of fashion,” the jury commented.


“It is impressive to see how she, at such a young age, succeeds in giving so much body to her work, without any loss of experiment and challenge. With her designs, she shows better than anybody else what is going on in the Netherlands at the moment,” it added.
