crystallization water dress

Concept image for a liquid dress resembling flowing water by Iris van Herpen.  Material and production method still to be unveiled.  Initial studies based on high speed photographs (by photographer Nick Knight) of water being thrown at a model.

"The water-dress symbolises for me the incomprehensible magic of the body," says van Herpen. "I often wonder if we will keep on wearing fabrics in future, or if dressing will become something non-material, something that is visible, but not tangible or touchable."
